Inter Milan Firmly Declares Nicolo Barella ‘Not for Sale’ Amidst Newcastle United Interest

Recent reports have surfaced regarding Newcastle United’s interest in securing the services of Inter Milan’s talented midfielder, Nicolo Barella.

While an intermediary has tested the waters for a potential move, the latest information suggests that Inter Milan is not currently looking to sell Barella during this summer transfer window.

La Gazzetta dello Sport has shed some light on the situation, revealing that although Newcastle has not submitted a formal offer, they have expressed their desire to sign the Italian international through a trusted representative.


Newcastle’s Initial Offer and Inter Milan’s Response

Through the intermediary, Newcastle United reportedly presented a preliminary bid of approximately €60 million for Barella.

However, Inter Milan has shown no interest in entertaining this offer, considering the player to be ‘non-transferrable.’

Despite the club’s financial considerations, they remain steadfast in their desire to retain the services of the highly-regarded midfielder.

It is believed that Barella would only contemplate a departure from Inter if a top-tier club, such as Manchester United, Manchester City, Chelsea, or Liverpool, were to express interest in his services.

Nevertheless, there remains a possibility that Newcastle United could return with an improved offer in their pursuit of the talented playmaker.
