Mourinho answers Perisic question

     Jose Mourinho admits he has 'no idea' if Ivan Perisic is close to signing for Manchester United. United are confident of completing a deal for Internazionale winger Perisic but the Italian club flies to China for their pre-season tour on Tuesday and the Croatian's future remains unresolved. Perisic, 28, posted a cryptic Instagram video of a plane taking off accompanied with a praying emoji but he could travel to Asia with his current teammates, reports MEN.

Publicly, there is a real division of responsibility with Mourinho and Ed Woodward because Jose doesn’t want to get involved at all with our transfers, even when asked directly, and I don’t think that is a bad thing.

It means Jose concentrates solely on the management of his squad and leaves the rest to Woodward, I suppose that puts him in a Director of Football type role.

Perisic’s future could well be resolved in the next 12 hours if United get what they want and finalise a deal for him but even if we’d already got the Croatian’s signature on the dotted line, I don’t think Mourinho would give anything away.
