Bayern Munich sign Ivan Perisic on loan from Inter Milan

Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich have signed Inter Milan and Croatia winger Ivan Perisic on a one-year loan deal, the club confirmed Tuesday.

Following the health checks, the 30-year-old winger sent a message to Bayern fans.

The report also goes on to state that Spanish side Sevilla made a last ditch attempt to try and sign Perisic but it is understood that Bayern's manager being Croatian Niko Kovac is what convinced Perisic to chose the Allianz Arena club.

The Croatia worldwide underwent medical tests on Monday morning in Munich with Bayern, who are desperately seeking reinforcement in the wide areas.

The former United target was spotted in Munich today and speaking to German newspaper Bild, he said: "Yeah, I just had the medical check-up". FC Bayern are one of the biggest clubs in Europe.

Having joined in 2015, Perisic spent four years at Inter, representing the Nerazzurri on 163 occasions while scoring 40 goals and assisting a further 37 strikes.

"Perisic can't play in the role that I want".

It remains unclear whether Bayern will still make a bid for Sane despite his injury.
