A report in the Italian media insists Inter Milan midfielder Nicolo Barella wouldn’t be out of sorts at either Real Madrid or Man City.

The 27-year-old produced a formidable outing against Atletico Madrid in the first leg of the Champions League Round of 16.

The Nerazzurri won the encounter thanks to Marko Arnautovic’s late strike. However, Barella was the man of the match on many accounts.

Thus, Il Corriere dello Sport (via FcInterNews) applauds the Sardinian for rising to the occasion in one of the most crucial fixtures in Inter’s campaign.

The Roman newspaper insists that the former Cagliari man has now cemented himself as one of the finest midfielders in Europe.

Although he hasn’t been scoring too many goals this season (only two), his overall impact remains substantial.

Moreover, the source feels that Barella would have no problem breaking into the strongest clubs in Europe.

CdS believes Barella wouldn’t look out of place at Real Madrid or Man City.

The report feels that the Euro 2020 winner has what it takes to carve himself a place in Pep Guardiola’s lineup among the likes of Kevin De Bruyne and Rodri.

Curiously, the reigning English and European champions reportedly tried to sign the Italian last summer.

Moreover, the source also names Real Madrid as it’s the home of some of the best midfielders on the planet. This includes the likes of Luka Modric, Toni Kroos, Federico Valverde and last but not least, Jude Bellingham.

But luckily for Inter, Barella appears destined to stay at the club. He has a contract until 2026 and should soon push back the deadline until 2029.
