Manchester United are free to sign Inter Milan midfield Fredy Guarin after the Italian outfit sacked manager Walter Mazzarri, according to the Daily Star.

The report has suggested that Red Devils boss Louis van Gaal has been tracking the Colombian for the last six months, with the player keen on a move to the Premier League giants. 

And, after the dismissal of Mazzarri, it appears that United are set to get their man in the upcoming January transfer window. Guarin, who enjoyed great success with Colombia at this past summer's World Cup, joined Inter in 2012, and is now in the prime of his career.

Midfield struggles 

There's no doubt about it, the Red Devils have struggled in the middle of the park for some time now, and it appears that United's Dutch boss has identified the 28-year-old as the man he wants to steady the ship after a disappointing start to the season. 

In fact, the same report has revealed that Guarin has been recognised as an alternative to Chilean midfielder Arturo Vidal, who failed to complete a move to the club in the last transfer window.
