Manchester United and Chelsea midfield target Fredy Guarin did not hand in a transfer request to force a move in the summer transfer window according to his agent.
The Colombian is believed to have been attracting interest from all over Europe, with both Juventus and Real Madrid also linked.
However it appears as though the strongest interest was coming from the Premier League, with both Manchester United and Chelsea said to be monitoring his situation.
Reports had suggested that he was looking to force his way out of the San Siro after growing frustrated with his club - but his agent Marcelo Ferreyra says that isn't the case.
'I want to make it clear that Guarin never requested a transfer,' he told reporters.
'Fredy is happy at Inter, always has been and will continue to be. We are absolutely not thinking about the transfer market.
'Fredy has everything he wants at Inter and has no need to go elsewhere. From what I hear, the offers were received by Inter. Walter Mazzarri will get the best out of him, just as he did last year.'
Both Manchester United and Chelsea were believed to be in the market for midfield enforcements over the summer. The Red Devils were heavily linked with Arturo Vidal from Juventus but an agreement couldn't be reached amidst rumours they were unhappy with the Chilean's recovery from knee surgery.
Chelsea meanwhile were said to be looking at a deal for Sami Khedira from Real Madrid, however that never really got off the ground. They did sign Cesc Fabregas from Barcelona for fee of around £30 million, but could well go back in for another midfielder in January having let Marco van Ginkel go out on loan to AC Milan.
Although they splashed around £150 million in the summer, Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal is reportedly set to be handed more cash in the winter window. Reports suggest this morning that the man for the job is indeed Khedira - although Chelsea could have something to say about that.
