Galatasaray want Fredy Guarin. Above all, it is the coach Roberto Mancini, who wants him and he tries to convince his club about the benefits of the deal, but according to La Gazzetta dello Sport, there are three obstacles: the Colombian doesn’t look favorably on a move to Turkey, Galatasaray have no intention to meet Inter’s requested price of 15 million; under the rules of the Turkish league clubs must not have more than six non-Turkish players.

“The thing that could make the deal more likely would primarily be Mancini’s will and he is pushing for Guarin and has been to the office, if nothing else, to convince the leaders of the Gala, who initially were skeptical of actually making an attempt with Inter and the player. Guarin is right now caught between a rock and a hard place: the insistence of Galatasaray and Inter, who could use the risk that he will spend the next five months before the World Cup outside the team. Overall, there is, with a player who wants to wait, a high risk of a tug of war to the bitter end unless Galatasaray, in the meantime, can come with convincing arguments.”
