Inter loanee Ivan Perisic says "I too think it's possible" that Bayern Munich will take up their option to buy him.
Perisic fell out of favour at Inter over the summer and subsequently joined Bayern, who can keep him permanently for €25m and whose CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has also hinted at a longer spell for the winger.
"I too think that's possible," he told the German giants' official website.
"Everything's positive in Munich so far, both in private and in terms of football.
"I have a one-year loan contract plus option to purchase. I'm just taking it step by step, from day to day. Let's see."
The Croat spent four years on the blue side of San Siro, arriving from Wolfsburg in the summer of 2015.
He made 163 apperances for the Nerazzurri in all competitions, scoring 40 goals and providing 37 assists.
