Ivan Perisic: 'Inter Milan's desire outweighed lack of Champions League football'

Inter Milan midfielder Ivan Perisic says that the club's desire to sign him outweighed their lack of Champions League football after he recently joined from Wolfsburg.

Inter Milan midfielder Ivan Perisic has revealed that he found it easy to make a decision to move on when the club came knocking to sign him from Wolfsburg.

The Croatian international joined the Italian outfit at the back end of the summer window for a fee thought to be in the region of £13m, and the 26-year-old has since stated that the club's desire to sign him outweighed their absence from the Champions League this year.

"When a club wants you badly and does everything they can to sign you, playing in the Champions League is no longer of interest," Perisic told La Gazzetta dello Sport.

"I am counting on it that Inter will be back in the Champions League next season. All the conditions are there for us to do well again. Even though I realise Inter had a difficult 2014-15 campaign."

Perisic made 70 appearances for Wolfsburg, scoring 18 goals for the Bundesliga team.
