After David Moyes was said to have turned down the chance to try to bring Fredy Guarin in during January, it was reported earlier this week Manchester United were considering re-visiting their interest.
They may not get the chance though if the Colombian has anything to do with it.
Speaking to SkyItalia yesterday he said he would take a life-time deal with current club Inter Milan if it were offered, proving there are no ill-feelings from their attempts to offload him to Juventus in January.
He said: "If the president today proposes a lifetime contract with Inter I would not think twice.
"I'm starting to feel an Inter player and I hope to demonstrate that I should be.
"Out in the field we are doing well, it is important to have players such as Hernanes with us."
The last comment was as to earlier suggestions Hernanes who was signed from Lazio on deadline could force him out, but that hasn't proved to be the case with both playing in the past three matches.
Guarin's wish, partly, could come true. For he admitted that talks over a new deal have begun, although there's no word whether it would be 'for life'.
"We have talked about a contract renewal and we will do it soon.
“After what happened, I have had to work even harder because the fans expected more. Even I thought I should be doing more, the team needs me and I want it to win.
"What happened in January made me much stronger and taught me a lot as a footballer and as a person."
Certainly if a move to United materialised it would be a surprise, their best chance was to sign him in January and having not done, they have probably missed out. Time will tell if there is somebody better around the corner.
