Chelsea and Manchester United Chase Exciting Colombian star
Chelsea and Manchester United could battle it out for Colombian midfielder, Fredy Guarin, in the January transfer window if the reports are to be believed.
The 27-year-old is central attacking midfielder who plays for Inter Milan. He made a name for himself with Porto, where he spent four seasons and won ten major titles. He joined Inter last season on loan and made his move permanent this season.
Central midfield is one of the key areas that need bolstering and according to reports from The Independent; David Moyes is keen to land Guarin to solve the problem. Summer signing Fellaini has failed to recapture his old form of Everton days, while injury to Michael Carrick meant, the onerous burden has fell on the shoulders of Tom Cleverley, Ryan Giggs and Phil Jones.
According to reports in Italy, Chelsea have registered their interest in the midfielder, who would cost around £15m. There is a concrete interest from Chelsea as Mourinho is a keen admirer of his talents. There were even reports that discussions have taken place between both the top directors in London.
