Colombian international asks for future to be clarified.
Inter Milan midfielder Fredy Guarin has insisted that he didn’t ask to leave the club, and it was the Nerazzurri who put him on the market.
The 27-year-old has been linked with a switch to Juventus throughout the January transfer window, after initial reports suggested that Inter were interested in signing Mirko Vucinic in a potential swap deal, as reported by Football Italia.
However, that move appears to have broken down as Walter Mazzarri looks to conclude the signing of Lazio midfielder Hernanes, with Guarin now left to discover his fate in Milan.
The Colombian international has taken to his official Twitter account to inform supporters that he did not ask to leave the club, and it was Inter who made him available on the transfer market as negotiations with Vucinic continued.
Nevertheless, he appears to be open to continuing with the Nerazzurri, provided that they clarify his future and show more respect.
Rumours on transfer deadline day suggest that both Tottenham and Galatasaray are still monitoring his situation, and if Inter complete the signing of Hernanes then he may yet leave the club on Friday.
“Inter, you put me up for sale without me ever saying to anyone that I wanted to leave, because I was comfortable and felt good at the club,” the midfielder has written today.
“I want clarity and respect for me, for the fans and for my agent. If I go away, the fans will always be in my heart because at Inter I have realised a dream and I have always received their respect and affection.
“If I stay, my strength will be put towards helping Inter to win.”
Guarin has experienced a mixed spell at Inter thus far, with critics suggesting that he has yet to reach his full potential having demonstrated his ability too inconsistently.
