Ivan Perisic may leave Inter if they can't challenge for title - agent
Ivan Perisic could leave Inter Milan in the summer if he is not convinced they can challenge for the Serie A crown next season, his agent has said.
Perisic has been in one of his best spells of form for the club in recent weeks.
The 27-year-old Croatia international has scored three goals in his last three games, but may opt to look elsewhere if he feels a title challenge is not realistic.
"He's desperate to win something big at Inter and it really got to him a lot when the team gave away top spot too easily," agent Toni Martic told fcinter1908.
"He would have no problems about staying with the Nerazzurri for a long time -- but it would have to be a great Inter side, ready to challenge for the Scudetto and playing in the Champions League."
Inter trail third-placed Roma by five points in the race for a Champions League playoff spot.
They travel to the capital to face the Giallorossi on Saturday in a game they need to win to revive hopes of returning to European football's elite club competition.
Martic said he believed Perisic's recent run of form had proved his critics wrong, adding: "Every player has good and less good moments in their career.
"Some journalists were too critical at a time when Ivan was having a few problems, and he is very sensitive and felt this.
"But it is part of being a footballer, particularly when you are at a top club like Inter."
