Guarin's brother: He's a Juventus player

The deal to bring Fredy Guarin from Inter to Juventus is still being completed, but the player's brother is certain the transfer will take place.

It now looks very likely that Colombian international Fredy Guarin will be wearing a Juventus shirt despite protests from the Inter fans.

Guarin has become a target for a number of Europe's top clubs, reportedly including Chelsea and Manchester United.

But Juventus seem to have beaten everyone to the punch and secured a deal involving striker Mirko Vucinic moving the other way in part exchange.

There had been suggestions that negotiations may break down after angry Inter fans responded to the news on Twitter and a statement was issued by the Curva Nord, but Guarin's brother has declared on Instagram that there's no doubt left.

"Official: Fredy Guarin is the first Colombian player to play for Juventus,' his post reads, according to Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport.

It seems that Inter owner Erik Thohir still has to sign off on the agreement between the two clubs, but that should be a mere formality.

Vucinic's future had also been the subject of intense speculation and rumours he could join Arsenal were quickly replaced by news that he had conducted a medical at Inter.

It seems that the deal that Inter and Juventus discussed at length yesterday would be a part exchange and the Nerazzurri would receive several million pounds to even up the transfer, but Inter fans are livid at the suggestion.
