Inter midfielder Fredy Guarin feels that the collapse of his proposed January transfer move to Juventus was down to "destiny".
The Nerazzurri had agreed to allow the Colombia international to move to Turin in exchange for Bianconeri striker Mirko Vucinic only for club president Erick Thohir to pull the plug on the swap deal at the 11th hour for "technical and financial" reasons.
It was felt that a fan backlash had also played its part but Guarin felt it was merely a question of fate intervening.
"It was a sign, of an important destiny," the former Porto man told Inter's official website. "It was the second time that it happened.
"Even when I arrived at Inter, I had the opportunity to go to Turin and the fact that for a second time I am here, that is something important.
"What has happened has happened and is in the past. I have always been close to the fans, I feel the things that are done with their heart and I understand them.
"I always look at it as something positive - it's great to see the strength our fans give us, both when they do positively and indeed negatively, because it's always added motivation for me.
"Although obviously I'm never happy when they're not.
"There are lots of things I want to improve - the first is my consistency on the pitch so I can play a whole game at a high tempo with the right focus."
