It’s reported Inter rejected Chelsea’s £13m offer for Fredy Guarin, but another proposal is being formulated.
The Colombian midfielder is widely expected to leave San Siro this month in order to raise funds for other transfer deals.
Jose Mourinho is eager to work with Guarin, who this week declared the manager is “Number One.”
According to The Times, a £13m offer has already been turned down for the 27-year-old.
Inter have set a £15m price-tag on the Colombia international, who will be at the 2014 World Cup.
However, Radio Deejay in Italy maintain Guarin’s wage demands could prove an even bigger sticking point with Chelsea.
