Report: Barella rejected Chelsea

Chelsea reportedly agreed a €50m fee with Cagliari for Nicolo Barella in January, only for the midfielder to reject the move.

According to Tuttomercatoweb, Cagliari were ready to replace Barella with Boca Juniors’ €21m-rated Nahitan Nandez.

However, the website writes that despite the five-year, €25m contract offered to the Italy international, he stayed in Sardinia for family reasons.

Nonetheless, a spree for the 21-year-old is expected in the summer, with Inter, Napoli and Juventus all ready to do battle.
