Turin based newspaper Tuttosport reports today that an agreement for Italian international midfielder Nicolo Barella, has been found between Cagliari and Inter.
“The two clubs have a agreed a deal worth around €50 million, but Inter will only pay €33 million in cash and include two Primavera players, similarly to the deal for Radja Nainggolan a year ago. It’s not by chance that Alessandro Beltrami, the agent of both Barella and Nainggolan is behind both deals.”
According to Tuttosport, it’s a deal that suits everyone, Cagliari President Tommaso Giulini can rest easy knowing his prized asset is in safe hands at Inter, while Barella will remain in Italy, increasing his chances of getting selected for the national team and being able to play with his friend Nainggolan.
“For Cagliari, the two Primavera players that they will receive are currently being decided. It is between, Merola, Pompetti, Gavioli and Colidio. Cagliari inquired about Esposito but Inter do not want to give him away due not wanting a repeat of the Zaniolo case.”
