WATCH: When Ivan Perisic Made Antonio Rudiger Look Stupid

If any Manchester United fans aren't too sure about the club's big target Ivan Perisic then a view at what happened when he came up against one of Chelsea's new signings might change their mind.

Jose Mourinho has been chasing Inter winger Ivan Perisic for the whole of the summer. United have stood firm with their offer whilst Inter refuse to bend to their higher asking price.

That was even including a period when the Italian side needed the money to make sure they passed UEFA's FFP rules but they got the money without selling the Croatian.

At that point the transfer seemed to be dead but now it looks like it'll happen sooner rather than later.

Both the buying club and the player are desperate to get it done before the sellers go on tour to China whilst Luciano Spalletti's team look set to bring in Keita Balde from Lazio as a replacement.

So it looks inevitable that Perisic will make his move to Old Trafford. That means that everyone is sharing the video of the winger taking on his soon to be rival Antonio Rudiger:

The 28 year-old was integral for his club last season, scoring 11 goals and setting his teammates up for a further eight goals

It is no wonder that Luciano Spalletti would rather keep him around in his first season at the San Siro with Mauro Icardi the only more important member of the team last season.

In the video Perisic is embarrassing Antonio Rudiger which will come as more of a delight to United fans than your ordinary highlight.

The former AS Roma defender recently made the move to Premier League champions Chelsea where he will be one of a back three and potentially come up directly with Perisic in next season's fixture.

Perisic seems to be the perfect fit in Mourinho's team. His ability to cross would certainly help new signing Romelu Lukaku.

Will he move to Old Trafford?
