Milito: Inter players will welcome Guarin back

Diego Milito

Inter striker Diego Milito insists that Fredy Guarin will be warmly received in the Nerazzurri dressing room despite nearly joining Juventus.

Fredy Guarin has been left in an awkward position after all but signing for Juventus yesterday only to see a deal collapse.

The Colombian midfielder looked set to be part exchanged for Juventus striker Mirko Vucinic and his brother had even announced the move on Twitter.

But Inter owner Erik Thohir pulled the plug on the transfer at the last minute, possibly due to the angry reaction it had received from fans.

Now Guarin is left at Inter but facing a backlash. He didn't attend training today while his agent works out his position.

There are rumours that Napoli and Manchester United are poised to step in for the 27-year-old, but teammate Diego Milito claims nobody in the Inter dressing room holds the events of the last 48 hours against him.

"It's a problem between Fredy and the club," the Argentine marksman told Sky Sport Italia.

"I hope it is resolved in the best way possible. As far as I am concerned he will be welcomed in the dressing room in the same way as ever - he is a teammate.

"The transfer market is always complicated for a player and he has to stay calm whether he leaves or stays. The best solution has to be found for all parties."
