Man United and Liverpool are keen on signing Inter Milan star Nicolo Barella in this summer transfer window. Italy international has been with the Nerazzurri for two years now, having initially arrived on loan from Cagliari in 2019 before making his transfer permanent last summer.
An integral part of Inter Milan at San Siro, Nicolo played a crucial role in the club’s first Serie A title triumph in over a decade and was a regular fixture in Italy’s UEFA Euro 2020 winning side.
Naturally, Barella is garnering a lot of attention after his exploits with club and country, with Man United and Liverpool both showing an interest in securing the midfielder’s services this transfer window. The Red Devils are in a precarious situation about the future of superstar Paul Pogba.
France international is in the final year of his deal with Man United, and there have been little to no indications that a renewal could be on the cards. This has forced Man United to assess their options and keep an eye on the market for replacements, with the Italian emerging as one.
This has seen the Reds get linked with a host of names over the past few weeks, with Nicolo also being viewed as an option if they miss out on Saul Niguez of Atletico Madrid.
Spain international, who is also on the radars of the Red Devils, is being tipped to sign for the Blaugrana, which would force the Merseyside club to look at alternatives such as Nicolo. Despite the speculations, it is widely expected that the Italian midfielder signs a new deal with Inter Milan and stays put.
