Inter have finally completed a deal to sign Nicolò Barella from Cagliari, Sky Sport reported this evening.

The midfielder will join the Nerazzurri on loan (€12 million) with an obligation to buy (€25 million), plus a series of ‘easy’ and ‘difficult’ bonuses.

Barella will arrive in Milan during the next few hours to undergo a medical and then sign his new five-year contract.

Inter and Cagliari came close to reaching an agreement during a meeting on Monday, but now the deal is completely done.

Barella has been adamant all summer that Inter were the only club he wanted to join, rejecting a more lucrative offer from Roma last month.

The 22-year-old is on holiday at the moment but he will cut them short to have his medical immediately.

If the final formalities are completed in time then Antonio Conte could include him in his squad for the Nerazzurri’s upcoming tour of Asia, where Inter will play Manchester United, Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain.

Barella scored one goal and created four assists for Cagliari last season as they finished 15th in Serie A.

He also represented Italy at this summer’s European Under-21 Championships, scoring once as Gigi Di Biagio’s side went out in the group stage.

Inter have been pursuing Barella for weeks on end but their quest to sign one of Italy’s brightest young talents has finally come to an end.
