‘Inter agree deal for Guarin’

Inter are reportedly on the verge of completing a deal for Fredy Guarin after successful talks with Porto.

The 25-year-old is expected to be announced as a Nerazzurri player before the transfer window closes tomorrow.

The Colombian was being linked with Juventus earlier this month before the Old Lady filled their only available non-EU spot with Martin Caceres.

Inter will apparently net the Colombian international on loan for the next six months at a cost of €1m with an option – possibly an obligation – to buy in the summer for another €11m.

Guarin’s arrival should not affect the short-term future of Thiago Motta at the club. He is expected to stay for now, but a move to Paris Saint-Germain at the end of the season seems very possible.

Guarin moved to Portugal in 2008 after a spell in France with Saint-Etienne.
