Fredy Guarin: Colombian midfielder strongly linked with Chelsea move

The 27-year-old Colombia international has been strongly linked with a move to Chelsea in January and recently claimed that Blues boss Jose Mourinho is the "number one" manager in the world.

Alvarez believes that Inter should try to keep hold of the "important" midfielder and concedes that his departure would have a negative impact on their season.

"I would be sorry if Guarin goes," he told Sky Sport Italia. "He is an important player for us and has done very well.

"We would be sorry to lose a player like him, but we still don't know anything. Fredy is still with us and we must take advantage of him to the maximum.

Alvarez has also played down suggestions that Inter could sell him as well in the near future.

"I am happy here and I want to stay," said the 27-year-old. "However, I don't know about other things and the club has not told me anything.

"I don't know about extending my contract either. I just think about playing."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
