Reports: Guarin to Chelsea is done deal

As Fredy Guarin removes Inter from his Twitter profile, there are reports in Italy that he has his bags packed and is headed for Chelsea.

Voices suggesting that Chelsea will sign Fredy Guarin are reaching a crescendo in Italy and the Colombian's Twitter profile seems to give a clue to his intentions.

Jose Mourinho has been tipped to sign various former colleagues over the last few months, but in Guarin he seems to have a concrete target.

There have been reports that Inter had rejected a bid of £12m but that £15m would secure Guarin's signature.

And according to Sportmediaset, the deal is agreed in principle while the two sides finalise the fee.

The Italian site claims that there is a pre-contract agreement for a four-and-a-half year deal and that Guarin is getting ready to leave.

Sportmediaset also believes that Inter will use the money they receive for Guarin to spearhead an assault on Cagliari midfielder Radja Nainggolan, who is also a target for Juventus.

The report cites Guarin's Twitter profile as evidence. The Colombian has apparently removed all photographic evidence of Inter from his profile.
