Cape Town - Manchester United are interested in bringing midfielder Freddy Guarin to Old Trafford after the move for Arturo Vidal has stalled.

The Daily Star reports that Colombian Freddy Guarin has been lined up as an alternative target after Louis van Gaal appeared to rule out a move for Arturo Vidal.

Van Gaal is hesitant to sanction a club record move for Vidal after learning about the Chilean's ongoing knee injuries.

Manchester United are now turning their attention to the Inter Milan midfielder.

Guarin, a versatile midfielder, can play across the midfield and will be allowed to leave the San Siro as Inter chase their own targets.

Despite playing only a limited role in Colombia's Soccer World Cup campaign, Guarin is considered one of the best midfielders in Italy's Serie A.

After three season with Inter, Guarin could be headed for the English Premiership.
