Transfer news: Manchester United step up chase for Internazionale midfielder Fredy Guarin - reports
Manager Moyes has sent out representatives to watch the Colombian
Thursday 12 December 2013
Manchester United manager David Moyes has reportedly sent out representatives to watch Internazionale's Fredy Guarin ahead of making a January offer for the midfielder.
The 27-year-old has been identified as the player needed to bolster Moyes' struggling midfield, in which he has largely played 40-year-old Ryan Giggs and centre-back Phil Jones in the middle of this season.
Guarin is well known to one current Premier League manager - Tottenham Hotspur's Andre Villas-Boas, having won the treble under him at Porto in 2011.
The Colombian can also play in the Champions League knockout stages, as Inter finished ninth in Serie A last season. Guarin joined Inter from Porto for £9m in May 2012, turning his loan deal permanent.
It was been reported that Inter could be open to an offer of £15m for the midfielder.
