Man United & Chelsea dealt fresh transfer blow

Published Add your comment

Inter Milan midfielder Fredy Guarin has revealed that he is already in discussions with the Nerazzurri over signing a new contract, pouring scorn on the chance of either Chelsea, Manchester United or Juventus resurrecting a transfer swoop for the Colombian international this summer.

Guarin looked all set to leave Inter for either the Premier League or Serie A champions Juventus last month, but at the last minute a swap deal involving Old Lady striker Mirko Vucinic was cancelled and Inter decided to retain the player.

The 27-year-old has since been restored to Inter's midfield despite uncertainty over his future, a position Guarin is keen to clarify quickly after telling Sky Sport Italia that he fully expects to sign fresh terms at the San Siro imminently.

He is quoted by Football Italia as saying: “The president knows about the player I am. We have talked about a contract renewal and we will do it soon. 

"After what happened, I have had to work even harder because the fans expected more.

“What happened in January made me much stronger and taught me a lot as a footballer and as a person. Now I am relaxed and happy and the boss knows what I can give.”

Both Chelsea and United are believed to be keeping a close check on Guarin's future, with the Blues in particular persistently linked with the box-to-box midfielder before eventually completing a £21m deal for Nemanja Matic.

United also opted to move in another direction with the club-record acquisition of Juan Mata, but that has done little to dampen the expectation that David Moyes will make a concerted effort to reshape his squad during the close season.
