Fredy Guarin could join Real Madrid in January

Published Add your comment

Manchester United, Chelsea and Tottenham target Fredy Guarin is being linked with a January move to Real Madrid following speculation in Italy suggesting that Carlo Ancelotti wants to take the Inter Milan midfielder to the Santiago Bernabeu.

TalkSPORT reports how the Colombia international was heavily linked with a San Siro exit during the summer, but a transfer never transpired after the player's alleged suitors failed to meet the Serie 'A' club's valuation.

Red Devils boss Louis van Gaal was credited with an interest in bringing Guarin to Old Trafford as he looked to strengthen his midfield department, but decided against the 28-year-old after securing the signature of versatile Dutchman Daley Blind from Ajax.

Mauricio Pochettino had also considered a bid for the South American schemer, before ending up signing Benjamin Stambouli from French side Montpellier in a cut-price £4.8 million deal.

His original player-plus-cash offer - which would've seen Roberto Soldado leave White Hart Lane - at first looked like an appealing deal, however the Argentine manager decided against proceeding with that and Soldado remained in north London.

Inter's asking price for Guarin has since dropped to around £12 million, prompting fresh interest from Real Madrid in securing the player's signature in January.

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has been mooted as an admirer of Guarin as well, despite his wealth of midfield options currently available to him at Stamford Bridge.

Ancelotti is also blessed with great strength and depth in that area of his squad, but a move to the Spanish capital now appears to be the most likely option.

Walter Mazzarri recently claimed that Guarin was happy to stay in Italy, and with three years still to run on his current contract it's not difficult to see why. However, the chance to join Real Madrid in the New Year might prove too good an opportunity to turn down.
