Inter might sell Nicolo Barella in near future

Inter may sell Barella if the club fails to qualify for the UEFA Champions League next season, according to Italian news outlet Gazzetta.it. Barella has been linked with moves to Liverpool and Paris Saint-Germain as both teams want to strengthen their midfield positions during the summer transfer window.

Barella is not a player with whom Inter would wish to part ways. The former Cagliari player and EURO 2020 winners has been a key member of the Nerazzurri’s midfield all season. Moreover his value to the squad came into spotlight by his efforts against Benfica in the Champions League. The italian midfielder scored in both legs of a quarterfinal encounter. However, this does not imply that some of Europe’s most powerful teams are not interested in signing Barella.

According to the Gazzetta, Liverpool’s interest in the 26-year-old has only risen as they appear to have slipped out of the competition to recruit Borussia Dortmund midfielder Jude Bellingham ahead of next season. Barella is possibly a key summer transfer target for the Reds. Meanwhile, according to the newspaper, PSG has shown interest in signing Barella. Especially since he would be “sponsored” by Marco Veratti, who has vast experience playing with the Inter midfielder for the Italian national team.

Nerazzurri deem Barella to be “hands off”

In any case, the Nerazzurri would deem Barella to be “hands off” in most circumstances. But that may change if they fail to qualify for the Champions League next season. Revenues from Europe’s top club competition are critical to the Nerazzurri’s financial plan.

Inter’s sole chance of qualifying for the Champions League next season is to win the champions league this season. Now they’re in the semifinals, where they’ll face archrival AC Milan with a ticket to the final on the line.
