Report: Manchester United and Liverpool target Fredy Guarin available for loan

Fredy Guarin

Internazionale are keen for Colombian international midfielder Fredy Guarin to leave the club on loan.

Guarin has been touted for a potential move to the Premier League for a number of months, with Chelsea said to be keen on bringing the 28-year-old to Stamford Bridge over the summer.

The Blues turned down the deal, and Guarin remained with Inter for the start of the campaign, but he has made just nine appearances in Serie A this season. Although he has a return of two goals and three assists in his lack of game time, the form of Gary Medel and Mateo Kovacic has kept him out of Roberto Mancini’s side.

It is said that Mancini is keen on the player, but his lack of end product has forced the club to consider his position, and La Gazzetta dello Sport is reporting that he has been made available for loan in the January transfer window.

This is welcome news to both Liverpool and Manchester United, who have been tracking the midfielder for the majority of this season according to reports. Wanted on loan by Liverpool, and on a permanent deal by United, Inter have outlined their preference as a loan deal with option to buy in the summer of 2015.

However, the report also indicates that Inter could be willing to sell him as early as January, as they look to comply with Financial Fair Play, and have set a valuation of around €15 million on the Colombian’s head.
