It is no secret that Cagliari’s midfielder Nicolo Barella who is Inter’s target for the midfield is an interista and it is playing a major factor in keeping Inter in the race to sign the Italian.
Roma’s Sporting Director has confirmed Barella’s intention, to join Inter and play under Conte:
“I personally never wanted Barella but it was Cagliari who sought Roma because Inter were trapping. The boy has chose Inter after talking to Conte. He has no motivation to come to Roma, the race is over.”
