Manchester United have sent representatives to Italy to open talks over Inter Milan’s Colombian midfielder Fredy Guarin over a potential 17.8€ million move to Old Trafford in January.
The Nerazzurri could be open to letting the midfielder leave with the advantage for United that he would be eligible to play in the last 16 of the Champions League.
Guarin joined the Serie A club on loan from Porto in 2012 January transfer window after being a part of then manager Andres Villas-Boas treble winning team.
Prior to signing Paulinho and Etienne Capoue for Spurs in the summer AVB was considering a move for his former Porto star but signed the Brazilian and Frenchman instead.
Currently United are sitting eight places, and 13 points below Premiership leaders Arsenal with Moyes knowing that an attacking midfielder such a Guarin would offer the Scot an option in a particularly problematic area of the field for United.
After a less than stellar dip into the transfer market last summer Moyes will feel under pressure to get it right this time round, yet given the former Everton managers cautious approach I have a feeling that many Manchester United fans will once again be disappointed by a lack January transfers.
