Inter Milan midfielder Fredy Guarin is set to deal Premier League side Chelsea a real-blow by signing a new deal at the San Siro, just two months after he was close to sealing a move to Stamford Bridge.
The Colombian midfielder was wanted by Jose Mourinho and according to reports, the West London club made a £13million offer for the Milan man, but that was soon rejected by the Italian club as they wanted to hold out for more.
The 27-year-old was then in the final stages of completing a move to Juventus to take part in a swap deal with Mirko Vucinic, but that deal also collapsed and he remained an Inter Milan player.
Now, the Colombian is set to put pen-to-paper and sign a new 12-month extension, which will see him remain at the club until 2017 at least.
