BAYERN MUNICH have reportedly completed the signing of Ivan Perisic from Inter Milan.
The one-time transfer target for Manchester United has agreed a loan deal with the German champs with a view to buy.
Respected Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano has said that Bayern will pay Inter £5m for the season-long loan.
Then next summer the Croatian will be available to buy for £20m.
Perisic was linked with a move to Old Trafford under previous boss Jose Mourinho, and also this window under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Italian newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport even reported that Inter boss Antonio Conte offered Perisic as part of the Romelu Lukaku deal.
But United were only interested in a cash-only deal for Lukaku – and got their wish when he left for £75m.
Perisic was No1 on Mourinho’s wishlist during his time in charge.

Mourinho was even said to be baffled by United chief executive Ed Woodward’s decision to splash out on Lukaku ahead of the Inter winger.
Perisic scored eight league goals last season and helped Inter secure Champions League football.
He began his career in France before moving to Club Brugge, Borussia Dortmund, Wolfsburg and Inter.
