Chelsea target's wage demands derail transfer

Chelsea's move for Inter Milan star Freddy Guarin may have been derailed after he made huge wage demands in negotiations over personal terms.

Guarin recently confirmed his agent had been in talks with the Stamford Bridge club over a possible January transfer, in what was reported to be all but a done deal earlier this month.

However, TuttoSport are now reporting that the deal is in danger of collapsing after the Colombia international's agent entered negotiations with a figure in mind that was far removed from what Chelsea's moneymen were thinking.

The report claims Guarin wanted £5million-a-year from the Blues to make the move to Stamford Bridge, which has meant it is now in real danger of being called off completely.

Jose Mourinho has a number of central midfielders at his disposal, so the move for Guarin is being questioned by some as not addressing the more pressing need of increasing the goal-threat in the centre-forward area.

However, Frank Lampard's fitness has been an issue this season and reports have emerged recently claiming that Michael Essien could be set to move on in January, which would leave Mourinho needing further cover.
