Nicolo Barella: The Cagliari midfielder lauded by Andrea Pirlo

https://www.bbc.com/sport/football/45589553

His ambitions are to own a nice house and one day meet NBA superstar LeBron James - but Cagliari midfielder Nicolo Barella may have to widen his horizons soon.

 

Lebron owns a stake in Liverpool,

I do not think our board will go against Sarri this early in his tenure.  If he wants Barella, I suspect the club will make an effort.  Especially if Zola can have a persuasive effect

 

Was a report earlier that Cagliari had bid 21m euros (i think) for Nahitan Nandez and a lot of people assumed it was because Barella is coming to us.  Cagliari dont really spend that kind of money.

We also have EX managers that a lot of current and EX players would never play for again.

Lets pray that the Magic Box/Barella relations are friendly ones.

But like I said Granny wont pay the asking price ffs! Penny pinching instead of paying up for players we need 08c00d4eee712f2aace7fc34c4f06f7f.gif

We paid what was needed to get Pulisic, so I don't see there being issues with paying for Barella if we see him as a potential midfielder in our side for the next decade.

The biggest issue I think will be if the lad wants to move abroad. Not many Italians play abroad, similar to the English and at his age he may feel that the next step is moving to play for one of the big Italian teams.

Chelsea want Barella or Paredes to replace Fabregas

Chelsea have reportedly identified two targets to replace the outgoing Cesc Fabregas, and Maurizio Sarri wants that replacement in the next week.

The two midfielders in question are Caligari’s Nicolo Barella and Zenit’s Leandro Paredes, according to Corriere dello Sport via Sport Witness.

However, with no bids sent or terms agreed, this would be an ambitious push. Apparently, Marina Granovskaia is unwilling to match the €40m-50m price tag on Barella, and could instead spend that on Paredes because of his greater experience.

Gianfranco Zola could apparently prove key to a deal given his time in charge at Cagliari in 2014/15, but president Tommaso Guilini would prefer to sell his midfielder in the summer unless someone does meet or exceed his price tag.

If they decide to go for Barella, this would give the Serie A club the chance to find a replacement before the end of the transfer window, but the journalist behind the article doesn’t believe Chelsea and Marina Granovskaia are prepared to match the price tag (€40-50m) set by Tommaso Giulini, Cagliari’s president.

The belief within Stamford Bridge is that Roman Abramovich’s right hand will only go as far as €35m for Barella, and would be far more prepared to splash €50m on Paredes instead due to the Argentine’s more ‘relevant CV’ (he’s four years older).

And Barella turns 22 on February 7,  he is only 2 and a half years younger than Paredes, not 4 like the article states. He isnt some 16, 17 year old kid. This is his 3rd year as a starter in top flight football. IF Paredes was actually 4 years older than Nicolo, and we signed him to a 5 year deal, he would 31 at the end, and of much less resale value, in fact the exact same age and contract situ we just went through with Cesc. Critical thinking needed here.

Well its a difficult thing to even start thinking BUT MAYBE 'the board' might be softening towards buying young gifted talent.

Paying up so much for Pully shows they are at least willing to buy ones they want.

I think the 'close to agreeing a deal with both' will be us covering all bases, we won't get both but 1.

At least we are finally going after players I truly rate. Barella for sure, and Paredes is a true DH DMF. Barella is a more forward driving MF, but the nice thing is he has a real hard streak in him on defence.

Its why I rate Tonali so high. He is like Jorginho or a poor man's (atm, give him time) Pirlo, crossed with Gatusso.

We're gonna sign both?! :carlo: 

I don't think so, I think it's more of a case we don't let either slip through the net, agree a deal with both and sign one, it can happen.
