Manchester United have been offered the chance to sign Inter Milan midfielder Fredy Guarin.
The Daily Telegraph claim the Premier League champions could sign the highly sought-after Colombian international before the transfer window shuts on January 31.
Chelsea were said to be chasing Guarin's signature at the start of the transfer window but decided to re-sign former Blues midfielder Nemanja Matic from Benfica.
Guarin was on the verge of joining Juventus at the beginning of the week in a potential deal that would see Mirko Vucinic move the other way.
However the deal between Inter Milan and Juventus collapsed - which has left Guarin in limbo.
Serie A giants Inter are willing to offload Guarin but have slapped an £18million price-tag on his head.
Inter are said to be interested in signing Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez, so could tempt the Mexican international away from Old Trafford by using Guarin as bait.
