Galatasaray set to make €10m bid for Fredy Guarin

Published Add your comment

Fredy Guarin is the transfer saga that has run and run this January - and according to the latest Gazzetta dello Sport report, the Tottenham and Manchester United target will now be the subject of a €10m offer from Galatasaray.

The Italian paper reports that the Turkish giants are preparing a €10m offer for the 26-year-old midfielder, who has been heavily linked with Tottenham and United.

He was reportedly close to signing for Chelsea and Juventus at various points in January to date, but he may now be off to join Didier Drogba in Istanbul.

Managed by former-Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini, Galatasaray have spent a significant sum in recent seasons putting together a squad capable of reaching the latter stages of European competitions.

Guarin was tipped to move to Chelsea earlier this month before Jose Mourinho re-signed Nemanja Matic from Benfica while Spurs have also been mentioned as admirers.

Likewise Manchester United and Tottenham were thought to be interested in the Colombian international before United swooped for Juan Mata in a £37m deal.

Guarin, who has 47 caps for Colombia, joined Inter Milan from Porto in 2012 and he's made 51 appearances in Serie A for the Italian giants.

He prefers a switch to Juventus, but with time running out before the January deadline, he may only be left with an offer from Galatasaray.
