It has been reported that Genoa are interested in Manchester United fullback Guillermo Varela.
Genoa hope to take Varela on-loan for the remainder of the season.
TMW reported that Genoa president Enrico Preziosi has been in talks with his agent today.
While the player seems eager for the move, Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal is opposing it.
Varela is a 22-year-old Uruguayan right-back who arrived from Penarol in July 2013.
