Inter finally agree Barella deal

Inter have finally agreed a deal to sign Cagliari midfielder Nicolo Barella for a reported €45m plus bonuses.

Sky Sport Italia, Sportitalia, Gazzetta dello Sport and Niccolo Ceccarini all report Barella will undergo a medical tomorrow before putting pen to paper on his Inter contract.

While Sky note the Nerazzurri are signing the 22-year-old on loan with an obligation to buy for €45m plus bonuses, Gazzetta counter that it is a €10m loan with a €35m obligation.

He is expected to sign a four-year contract worth €2.5m a season and join up with the Beneamata for the International Champions Cup, which kicks off in Singapore against Manchester United on July 20.

It marks the end of a summer-long saga between the player and clubs, with the impasse even bringing Roma into the equation.

The Sardinian made 112 appearances in five seasons with Cagliari’s first team, scoring seven goals and providing six assists, while he has netted twice in seven Italy caps.
