Cagliari midfielder Nicolò Barella is at the centre of a bidding war between Juventus and Inter, with Beppe Marotta playing a key role.
According to Tuttosport, the 21-year-old Italy international will be on the market next summer and the main contenders are Inter and Juve.
Marotta was until last week the director general of Juventus, but he was pushed out of the post and is widely expected to sign for Inter within weeks or even days.
