Inter Milan ace Perisic has been absolutely sensational for Croatia this World Cup, with the winger playing in a big part in his side’s route to the final.

The wide-man has scored two and assisted one for his country so far, helping them overcomes sides like Argentina, Russia and England on their route to the final.

For his club, Perisic was in fine form last season, with the player managing to bag a total of 11 goals and 11 assists in 37 games in Serie A, a fantastic record for a winger.

If Perisic does sign and Martial does leave because of it, it’ll be interesting to see if the Croat can overshadow the level of performances that Martial put in during his time in a Red Devils shirt.
