ROME – Cagliari "closed with Roma" for the sale of Nicolò Barella , who is now "taking a couple of days to calmly assess the new situation". This was stated by the president of the Sardinian club, Tommaso Giulini, explaining that an agreement with Inter on the fixed part had been reached on 11 June, there were only the bonuses to be discussed. But we haven't heard Inter for twenty days. I don't know if Inter is still interested in the boy. In the meantime – he added – Rome has made us an even more important offer ".
Roma has reached an agreement with Cagliari but has yet to convince Barella. To do so, the Giallorossi have exceeded Inter's offer by offering the boy an annual salary of three million euros plus bonuses not difficult to reach. Inter stopped at 2.5 million per season.
"I want to clarify that there is no auction, to talk about an auction is irrelevant to Cagliari's way of working", explained Giulini, leaving the headquarters of the Lega Serie A where he participated in the assembly, as well as the leaders of Rome and Inter.
"On 11 June we reached an agreement with Inter on the fixed part, which is the most important thing in any negotiation, there were only the bonuses to be discussed, but we haven't heard from Inter for twenty days. Not if Inter is still interested in the boy – added the president of Cagliari -. In the meantime we closed with Roma, made us an even more important offer. We are satisfied ".
"At this point, given that it is a very recent thing, I think it is legitimate for Nicolò to take a couple of days to decide well what his future is," continued Giulini and, to those who asked him which is the preferred destination of the midfielder, replied.
"He has never been oriented towards anything, he has never had an agreement with anyone. The thing with Roma is recent, as it is right that it is taking a few days to calmly assess the new situation. Let's hope the matter closes within a few days "So Marotta didn't raise today? "I didn't see him today," Giulini cut him short, leaving the offices of the League.
DEFREL COMING – First official transfer market day for Cagliari. But the rossoblù strategies will depend a lot on the definition of the sale of Barella to Rome: the jewel of the National will dissolve the reserves within the next two days. With the arrival in Giallorossi the attacker Defrel would immediately arrive in Sardinia, the point that should support Pavoletti in Maran's attack patterns.
Decisive hours for the sale of Joao Pedro, ever closer to Atalanta: in exchange, more money would arrive Mattiello, a defensive outsider able to play on both sides left uncovered by the exits of Srna on the right and Pellegrini on the left. Cagliari looks for a heavy name to give quality to the midfield: the names of the last weeks are those of Traorè and Rog.
The problem is that everyone likes them all: for example, the former Neapolitan would be courted by Fiorentina. Maran's team must also deal with the farewell to Padoin: therefore Bradaric and Cigarini remain for the role of director, Faragó, Oliva, Ionita and Deiola for the other two median roles.
Three quarters in place, instead, with the double Castro-Birsa solution. To define it – but another loan is likely – the position of Colombatto and Han, last year in Verona and Perugia. Despodov and Cerri should also remain in attack. Situation unchanged in the goal with Cragno, Rafael and Aresti (source Ansa).
