United were heavily linked with a move for the Colombian in January, with Javier Hernandez touted as a makeweight in a potential deal. Of course it didn’t materialise, and after flirtations with Chelsea and a move to Juventus breaking down, Guarin remained at Inter Milan.
The 27 year old joined Inter from Porto 2 years ago for £10m and has been part of the first team set up since, described as frustrating due to his ability to astound for both good and bad reasons.
With Inter Milan owner Erik Tohir blocking Guarin’s move to Juventus in January, it is clear that the midfielder is seen as one of Inter’s key players. His 4 goals and 13 assists helped the Nerazzurri finish 5th, earning a place in the Europa League as Inter look to rebuild having fallen by the wayside since winning the Champions League in 2010.
Guarin will reportedly come with an £18m price tag according to Corriere but given the prices United have been quoted for other midfield targets, £18m isn’t too bad and the fact that Guarin can play in deeper in midfield as well as in a more advanced role he could prove a useful acquisition.
Guarin is currently on international duty, watching from the bench as Jose Pekerman’s side beat Greece 3-0 on Saturday.
