Inter Milan manager Walter Mazzarri has admitted his side may be forced into selling Chelsea and Manchester United target Fredy Guarin.

Colombian international Guarin has been linked with a move to the Premier League during the past few months - with Chelsea reportedly leading Manchester United in the race to land the midfielder.

The 27-year-old has impressed for Inter Milan this season by scoring three goals and claiming four assists in Serie A so far this season.

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho and Manchester United manager David Moyes are in the market for a central midfielder this month and have identified Guarin as a potential target.

Inter Milan Sporting Director Piero Ausilio this week said the Serie A giants did not have any intention of selling Guarin, however Mazzarri has since claimed Guarin could leave the club in the near future.

The 52-year-old manager said on Guarin: "Clearly I'd like him to stay, but if his sale is being considered then that explains the club's situation.

"This year there are eight players coming towards the end of their contracts."

Reports had claimed Inter Milan were willing to use Guarin - who is valued at £12.5million - as bait to land Southampton's Pablo Osvaldo, however Chelsea are clear favourites to land the Colombian.
