Inter Milan midfielder Nicolo Barella is ready to ink a new contract with the club, having rejected a move to Man City last summer.

The 27-year-old has been an integral part of the squad since joining back in 2019. While his contract contract runs until 2026, the two parties are looking to push back the deadline even further.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport via FcInterNews, the Nerazzurri have already found an agreement with the player’s entourage following a meeting in Lisbon and another in Riyadh.

The new agreement will be valid until June 2029.

As the source tells it, the timing of the official announcement depends on club president Steven Zhang.

Moreover, the source explains how the management found a new way to reward the player. The midfielder will collect additional bonuses based on the club’s results in the Champions League and the FIFA Club World Cup.

Barella and club captain Lautaro Martinez will both benefit from this method.

Therefore, the source expects the midfielder’s wages to reach 7 million euros per season following the addition of easily achievable bonuses.

On another note, the pink newspaper reveals how Man City launched an onslaught for Barella in late August.

The reigning European champions were hoping to lure the Euro 2020 winner to the English shores.

However, Barella and Inter both closed the door on the proposition.

The two parties are eager to prolong their collaboration which will be crowned by a new long-term deal.

This season, the Sardinian midfielder has contributed with two goals and five assists in 22 Serie A appearances.

He remains an automatic starter in Simone Inzaghi’s lineup despite the stern competition for places in the middle of the park.
