Ivan Perisic today revealed it did not take him long to agree to a move from Inter to Bayern Munich.
The Croatian left the Nerazzurri on loan yesterday and hopes to make his move to the Bundesliga permanent next summer.
Perisic was presented to the media this morning and said he was happy to sign for Bayern, having previously represented Borussia Dortmund and Wolfsburg.
“I’ve come here to be part of the team and to play,” the 2018 World Cup finalist assured.
“There will be a lot of matches this season and everyone will need to be at their best.
“I didn’t need to think about it for long when Bayern called me. I want to give my best and achieve success here in Munich.”
Perisic scored nine goals for Inter in all competitions last season but endured a difficult 2018-19 campaign.
Antonio Conte’s decision to switch to a 3-5-2 system then meant he was surplus to requirements in Milan, opening the door to a departure.
“It was a very difficult year because I didn’t have much time to recover after the World Cup,” Perisic explained.
“When I got back to Milan I started with the competitive matches straightaway, which meant I had lot of ups and downs.
“I had a great preseason with Inter this summer though, especially with the new coach. Antonio Conte is someone who works hard.
“I’ve had a good preparation and I’m in great form to play now for Bayern.”
