New Nicolo Barella Contract With Inter Milan Offering Long-Term Deal
Inter Planning to ‘Reward’ Barella With New Deal
Italian journalist Romano claims Inter have opened talks with Barella over a new contract at the San Siro, and the club hope an agreement can be reached sooner rather than later.
It has been suggested that Inter chiefs have already met with the midfielder’s agent Alessandro Beltrami to discuss the terms of his client’s proposed deal.
Barella is currently under contract with the Nerazzurri until June 2024, but the club are intent on rewarding the 24-year-old as a result of his performances.
As such, Romano has added that the situation is currently not urgent; there is hope that steady progress can be made throughout the international break.
Barella Enjoyed a Fine Campaign Last Season
Barella cemented a position in Inter’s midfield as his own last season, which has ultimately led him to be one of Europe’s best in the centre of the park.
He played an instrumental role as part of the side’s run to the Serie A title, playing 36 games which placed him in strong contention for the Italian national team at Euro 2020.
He also shone for his nation over the summer as Italy went all the way and lifted the trophy, helping the team clinch its first European Championship crown since 1968.
Barella’s campaign subsequently captured the attention of a host of sides around Europe and led Inter to face the challenge of fending off reported interest for a key part of their squad.
The likes of Premier League giants Liverpool, Manchester United and Chelsea had all kept tabs on him over the summer, though a deal to prise him away from Italy never came close to materialising.
But current reports seem to suggest that the reigning Serie A champions hold firm possession in the battle for Barella, and a new deal looks to be fast approaching.
