Gala ask after Guarin too

Galatasaray are apparently next in line to ask about Fredy Guarin and have contacted Inter to enter into talks with the player.

The Colombian is seen as pushing for an exit from San Siro this month, on from having seen a proposed move to Juventus in exchange for Mirko Vucinic break down at the last moment.

Seen to have alerted a number of clubs, including Napoli and Chelsea and Tottenham from the Premier League, the 27-year-old is reported today as also listing Gala as a possible destination.

The Corriere dello Sport are running the line that a FIFA agent acting on behalf of Roberto Mancini’s side has contacted Inter for permission to enter into negotiations with Guarin.

Whilst this does not mean that an offer has been presented, the Turks are seen as prepared to table bids between €8m and €10m for the midfielder.

Whilst this falls below Inter’s perceived valuation of €13.5m, relations between the Nerazzurri and Gala are believed to be strong following Wesley Sneijder’s move between the two last season.

Meanwhile, it is also seen that the player has indicated his willingness to be fully available to Walter Mazzarri, should he not leave during this transfer window, with one eye on avoiding five months in the stands in the run-up to the World Cup.

Guarin returned to training yesterday, a day ahead of schedule having been granted two days’ leave following the breakdown in his switch out to Juve.
