Bayern Munich chief executive Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has expressed his appreciation for on loan Ivan Perisic and addressed when the club will discuss the future of the Croatian national team winger.
Perisic joined the Bundesliga side on a season long loan ahead of this season and the loan was extended until the end of this month to enable him to play in the latter stages of the Champions League.
“I like Perisic a lot. He is very efficient, and his stats are very good. Every time he plays, he’s productive. Ivan may not always be spectacular, but very reliable,” he explained in an interview with German news outlet Sport BILD, which appeared in today’s print edition.
With regard to Perisic’s future at the Allianz Arena, Rummenigge added: “We want to finish the Champions League and then we will return to the subject. The coach is counting on him.”
During his loan spell, Perisic has made 33 appearances across all competitions to date. In his time on the park, which totals just shy of 1700 minutes, the former Borussia Dortmund player has scored eight goals and provided 10 asssists for his teammates.
Some recent reports in the Italian media have suggested that Perisic could perhaps be reintegrated at Inter in the event that Bayern Munich do not sign him on a permanent basis.
