Inter breakthrough for Barella

Inter finally have a breakthrough for Nicolò Barella, as it’s reported Cagliari are prepared to accept €40m plus €6m bonuses with spread payment.

The midfielder was linked with Roma, Napoli, Milan and more, but was always adamant he wanted to join the Nerazzurri.

After weeks of negotiations, Sky Sport Italia claim this evening’s summit was decisive.

It’s believed Cagliari are lowering the asking price from €50m to €40m plus €6m in bonuses.

Above all, the Sardinians are prepared to open up and allow the spread of payment over several years, so it’ll be a paid loan with obligation to buy.

Sky maintain Inter hope to have Barella tied down within 48 hours.
