Ivan Perisic had no questions about joining Bayern Munich once the Bundesliga champions came calling, regardless of whether he was not their first-decision target.
Perisic signed for Bayern on Tuesday, touching base on an underlying one-season loan from Inter, with a choice to purchase.
Bayern had looked set to make a move for Leroy Sane all through the transfer window, yet any probability of signing the Manchester City winger was finished when the 23-year-old supported knee tendon harm in the Community Shield match with Liverpool on August 4.
The move for Perisic was made quickly, however not all Bayern fans have been satisfied by the transfer, with mentor Niko Kovac hitting out at recommendations the Croatia forward was not of the standard required.
In spite of the fact that Perisic recognized he was not Bayern’s essential up-and-comer, the previous Borussia Dortmund and Wolfsburg man demanded it was a straightforward choice to move back to the Bundesliga.
“It happened actually rapidly. Everyone comprehends what happened [with Sane], and I trust he recuperates well and rapidly,” Perisic told a news meeting in front of Bayern’s opening Bundesliga apparatus against Hertha Berlin on Friday.
“Yet, when they called me, I took just a couple of hours to make my choice with my family. At the point when a club like Bayern call, you can’t state no.
“That is the reason I’m here. I need to do the best here consistently, each game and I trust it will be a fruitful year.”
Perisic should contend with Kingsley Coman, Serge Gnabry and youth Alphonso Davies for a spot in Kovac’s side, however at 30, he adds some more experience to Bayern’s attack following the takeoffs of Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery.
“I’m coming here to be a part of the group, and to play. There are a great deal of games, and at this level you can’t play every one of the games,” Perisic said.
“We need everyone, at any rate 17, 18 players in the event that you need to be on top. You know during the season there will be wounds, so we’ll require everyone.”
Perisic scored eight Serie An objectives for Inter, who he participated in 2015, last term, however accepts his structure was frustrated because of an absence of rest following Croatia’s run to the World Cup final.
“The most recent year was an extremely troublesome one after the final. I had not even 20 days for recuperation,” he included.
“When I came back to Inter I was back in the side for the first round of Serie A. That was the reason the season was many ups and numerous downs.
“When you take a look at all the players who played in the last, you will see perhaps a couple of that had a great season.
“Be that as it may, this season I had a great pre-season with Inter, with the new mentor [Antonio] Conte he is an extremely diligent employee, and it will help me a ton here.”
