Fredy Guarin's agent confirms Chelsea bid

It sounds like we should be getting used to the idea of Fredy Guarin in the Chelsea midfield

Calciomercato are reporting some quotes from Marcelo Ferreyra, which seem to confirm that Chelsea are in serious talks with Inter Milan about the player. Here's what he had to say during his radio appearance, as reported by the Italian website and translated by Google:

"Right now I'm in Milan. The interest of Chelsea 's official, they are discussing his transfer directly with the Inter . When and if the two parties find an understanding, Fredy and I will start talking with the Blues."

"In the past few days we also went to London with leaders of Inter to talk with the London club. We want to understand what kind of project they have."

"There is also interest in Guarin from two clubs in Manchester , but at the moment, there is only one option . Now we are awaiting word from Thohir (Inter's majority owner), waiting for his decision. Fredy is now focused the (Milan) derby."

Assuming these quotes are actually real, it would seem to confirm the report we read in the Guardian earlier this week. It would also confirm that Tancredi jumped the gun again, even if there were actually talks between the clubs.

Should a deal come to fruition, the Blues will need to make space for Guarin on both the Premier League and Champions League rosters (though they can carry as many players as they want while the January window is still open). Combine that with Mourinho's comments yesterday about playing more conservatively, and this would seem to make a Kevin De Bruyne loan even more likely. There are several other reasonable options  to create that roster spot as well, and it will certainly give us plenty to talk about in January.
