Jose Mourinho: Inter Milan put up 'good defence' on Ivan Perisic”

Tottenham full-back Danny Rose has reportedly emerged at the top of Jose Mourinho's wish-list at Manchester United in the wake of an interview in which he criticised Spurs' apparent lack of ambition in the transfer market.

Mourinho wants a wide player who can attack down the left and has thrown his hat in the ring for Welsh wizard Gareth Bale.

There was cause for optimism and concern last season, but United simply must return to being title contenders this time around.

Monaco's Thomas Lemar and Atletico Madrid's Yannick Carrasco are seen as two outside options at this point, with the French club seemingly unwilling to sell another star player in this window, while the La Liga outfit are currently serving a transfer ban and will not be able to pick up a replacement for the Belgian star.

The 54-year-old has publicly stated his demand for a different kind of winger and that, of course, should be the priority.

The Portuguese manager is about to enter his second season at the Old Trafford helm.

Perisic continues to be a target but Inter have proven to be obstinate to say the least in their stance over the Croat.

As for Perisic, there have been no further developments in his potential switch to United since Inter were out in China for their pre-season tour in mid-July.

"If I was playing against Inter tomorrow I'd want to win".

The Red Devils take on Real Madrid in the Super Cup on Wednesday night and Mourinho strongly hinted he could make a move for Bale if he became available.

Mourinho admitted that the Serie A side "put up a good defense" to retain their talented attacking player, and seems to have now moved on from the pursuit.

Far more likely, especially if Football Whispers has its info correct, is that Perisic will swap the blue stripes for the solid red of Old Trafford.

The United manager also repeated that Zlatan Ibrahimovic could re-sign despite having been released.

United did not finish lower than third in the Premier League era under Sir Alex Ferguson, but since his retirement have ended seventh, fourth, fifth and sixth.
