Mancini 'confident' over Perisic deal

The 26-year-old looks set to leave Wolfsburg for San Siro as the Serie A side bid to replace Xherdan Shaqiri, who departed for Stoke City

Inter boss Roberto Mancini is “confident” of completing the signing of Ivan Perisic from Wolfsburg after watching his team finish last in the Trofeo TIM pre-season tournament.

The Croatia international appears set to move to San Siro in the coming days following the sale of Xherdan Shaqiri to Stoke City, as Mancini continues his search for width.

“Perisic? I am confident of many things,” Mancini told reporters.

The Nerazzurri went down 1-0 to Sassuolo on Wednesday, having also been beaten by rivals AC Milan 2-1 in their other game on the night, and Mancini added that he was “angry” with his players for their performances.

“I’m not worried, I’m angry because in some parts of the game we needed to be more responsive,” he said.

“I can’t be disappointed because we lost the trophy, it serves to build up fitness for the new season.”
