Metro have Manchester United fans sitting up and looking rather unimpressed here in the Football Transfer Tavern, as they claim that Chelsea have lodged an official bid for star Fredy Guarin.
The Inter Milan player had been heavily linked with a move to Manchester United in recent weeks and David Moyes is certainly keen on landing him, but as one of our punters notes, it is not exactly shocking that Chelsea have an edge on the Red Devils.
Jose Mourinho of course has a good relationship with Inter Milan bosses after his treble winning season at the club, and given the fact that Chelsea have now tabled an official bid for the 27-year-old, it seems that the Blues could well net the player.
Chelsea are keen to bring in another midfielder and the fact that Guarin is a box-to-box player with the ability to net a goal and also a strong desire to play in the Premier League, it could well be a match made in heaven.
One of our punters with a sore head from celebrating Manchester City’s win yesterday questions exactly how much the player will cost Chelsea, and is told an amount of around £10 million has been initially offered, with a further £5 million in potential bonuses.
Will Chelsea swoop in and steal the star from under United’s noses? Let us know your thoughts below.
