Manchester United & Chelsea face battle for Colombian ace

Published Add your comment

Manchester United, Chelsea and Tottenham face competition for Inter Milan midfielder Fredy Guarin from La Liga champions Barcelona, according to the Express.

Barcelona boss Gerardo Martino is reportedly keen to strengthen his midfield in the January transfer window – and has identified the Colombia international as a potential target.

The 27-year-old, who has been an Inter player since January 2012, previously worked under Tottenham head coach Andre Villas-Boas at Porto, while United boss David Moyes has reportedly had a long-standing interest in the former Saint-Etienne star.

However, Guarin may be tempted by the prospect of teaming up with Lionel Messi, Neymar and co. at the Camp Nou, where Martino has personally requested to Barcelona president Sandro Rosell that Guarin be purchased when the transfer window re-opens.

If Barcelona successfully sign Guarin, it will inevitably increase speculation regarding Alex Song's future with the Catalan giants.

The former Arsenal star has been linked with the Red Devils in recent days, but it's unclear in this stage whether Moyes regards Guarin or Song as the better fit for his team.
