Inter refuse to sell Barella despite recent rumors and interest from Newcastle United. The Nerazzurri consider Nicolo Barella untouchable and will not discuss a transfer fee for the Italian midfield maestro. The Magpies came forward with a €60 million offer for Barella, but Inter were quick to refuse the proposal. Barella is a fundamental part of the project for Inter going forward. So the Nerazzurri do not want to sell him to any club in this transfer window. Also, Newcastle were way off from the evaluation, as Barella is worth a lot more.
The Italian midfielder is one of the best young midfielders in Europe, and Inter does not want to lose a player like him. The Nerazzurri also consider him as their future captain, as Barella has leadership qualities. It is hard to find a player like him that is highly technical, tenacious, and can contribute on both sides of the pitch. Barella is exceptional on the ball and has a knack for scoring goals. But his off-the-ball movement is underrated as he has a brilliant work rate.
Inter refuse to sell Barella as they consider him ‘untouchable’
The Italian midfielder came as a youth product from Cagliari. He became one of the best midfielders in Serie A in no time. Barella’s ability to get in the pocket of spaces and progress the play is something that can not be coached. The Italian midfielder has brilliant control and an exceptional first touch. His leadership qualities set him apart from his age group of players.
Barella is the face of Inter’s midfield and selling him, even for a good price, would be futile. The Nerazzurri were considering putting a price tag on him when they were struggling financially. But after success in the Champions League Inter does not want to lose any key player in the transfer window.
