The Nigerian midfielder of Chelsea John Obi Mikel is attracting the attention of Inter Milan from Italy of the Serie A with an offer of around €12 million suspected to be launched in order to add the player to Inter Milan.
Obi Mikel is not the preferred option of Jose Mourinho as the Portuguese coach usually chooses Lampard, Ramires, Oscar or the newest signing Nemanja Matic instead of the Nigerian midfielder and a move to Inter Milan would see him becoming a consistent starter for Walter Mazzari.
Manchester United will not be happy to hear Fredy Guarin’s intentions on staying with Inter Milan as the Colombian midfielder has been a target of the Premier League club since last summer and there were even rumors being spread around involving a possible swap deal with Javier Hernandez who could be used as bait in order to lure Guarin from Inter Milan.
Guarin has a contract with Inter Milan that runs up until 2016 but the Colombian player has admitted that he wishes to stay with the Italian club even longer than what his contract states.
“The president knows about the player I am. We have talked about a contract renewal and we will do it soon’’.
“If Thohir offered me a contract for life with Inter right now, would I think about it? No, I wouldn’t need to think for a moment. After what happened, I have had to work even harder because the fans expected more. Even I thought I should be doing more, the team needs me and I want it to win. I want to give everything for Inter and for the fans who have always believed in me’’. Guarin told Sky Sport Italia.
Manchester United will have to look somewhere else if they want to solve some of the midfield crisis that they have been suffering from as Guarin has no intentions on leaving Inter Milan anytime soon.
