    That's definitely the case. If you ask majority of the foreign fans when and why they started supporting inter atleast 70% of them will tell you it was during the ronaldo era and because of ronaldo. Dude was ridiculously popular in those days...hell even today when you mention him most people picture him in our shirt because he came here in his prime...

    Dude is the embodiment of joy at times and pure misery at others, but truly loves inter. And Southern Italians have always been known for their general sympathetic qualities (eg. funny to a lot of Northern Italians).

    I don’t think it will end up being to the same extent, IMO. Cristiano Ronaldo is way past his trendsetting days. He’s ‘98, last shot, Jordan right now. All about getting the job done. His days of “be like Mike”, dunking from the free throw line are over. People knew his move to Juve was only going to be temporary from the start. If they fail again this year in the UCL, I wouldn’t be shocked if he left Italy. (My gut tells me for one last shot with Manchester United until he ultimately ends up in LA/MLS.) We’re also in the social media age, social media = bandwagon heaven. Unless he wins something major with Juve outside of Italy, most people will end up forgetting he even played for them...ala the Wizards.

    His impact was made when he moved to Real Madrid; yeah I know, as if Real Madrid were lacking in that department to begin with.

    What is this based on and how did they arrive at that number? Ronaldo is my GOAT but this doesn't seem right.

    Why didn't he start against man u? If Conte doesn't like him why did we wasted almost 50m on him?

    I hope you’re joking. He just joined, let him train for a week before we judge Conte not starting him in a preseason friendly

    He shrugged his hands towards Rano, it kinda looked like he left him hanging, he looks excited though.

    Barella: Inter or nothing

    Nicolo Barella has revealed that he would have stayed at Cagliari if a move to Inter did not happen.

    Barella was courted by Napoli in January, while Roma were hoping to capitalise on the protracted nature of Inter’s negotiations with Cagliari.

    However, the midfielder ultimately joined the Nerazzurri in a €50m deal and he is delighted to be at the disposal of Antonio Conte.

    “Conte called me while I was on holiday and it was gratifying,” he told Corriere dello Sport.

    “It makes you feel important if one of the best Coaches in the world wants you in his squad.

    “Certainly this is the hardest training regime I’ve been on, together with the famous steps of Zeman. The intensity is always high, and you run with and without the ball.

    “The first few days of training were tough. He’s obsessive in everything he does and he really leaves nothing to chance.

    “I’d shared a very specific program with Cagliari, which was that I’d stay until June, and then we’d establish together what to do next.

    “I knew Napoli were interested in me, but I never thought about changing clubs in the winter.

    It’s true that I rejected a lucrative offer from Napoli, but I’ve never thought about money in my career.

    “I’ve always prioritised ambition and the welfare of my family. Money comes second.

    President Giulini had an agreement with Roma, but I explained to him that if he couldn’t find an agreement with Inter, I would’ve stayed at Cagliari.

    “I didn’t have to leave home. I was calm and I wasn’t in a hurry, but luckily the two clubs then came to an agreement.

    “I didn’t want to leave at all costs, but Inter’s offer was an opportunity I couldn’t miss for the sake of my career.”

    Given the 22-year-old is Cagliari born and bred, is it a case of ‘goodbye’ to the Sardinians or ‘see you later’?

    “In football, anything can happen. I’ve left my doors open. At the time of my transfer to Inter, both Giulini and I were happy.

    “We’re on good terms, we wished each other good luck and I hope Cagliari achieve their objectives this season.

    “I know some of their fans didn’t take my exit well but, even if there are whistles directed at me, I won’t go against my people. I’ll accept everything that comes my way.

    “I have a strong bond with Sardinia and I’m sorry if some people didn’t understand my choice.

    “I’ve always given everything to Cagliari and now I’ll do the same with Inter because I’m a professional.”
    Found the complete interview in CdS, adding the rest:

    What were the most beautiful messages you received after going to Inter?
    “There were many but there were also some messages that I expected but did not come. From those I will not say. The most beautiful ones are from Conti, Deiola and Ceppitelli.”

    If and when all the bonuses are activated, you could become the most expensive player in the history of Inter.
    “In the past, you had players that were worth more than me proportionally, like for example Vieri of 20 years ago. For me, paying that kind of money to sign me is a great stimulus to always do better.”

    What does it say about your career now that you are here at Inter?
    “I think I did very well at the Rossoblu to win a spot in the national team, it was such an honor. Now, a new chapter in my sporting life begins: Inter convinced me with a serious and ambitious project. I too am ambitious. The Nerazzurri were always my first choice, this is the ideal club for me to work and improve.”

    You said that you are ambitious. What kind of objective do you have?
    “Conte is a winner and everyone wants to win here. Logically, we want to do better than last season but when we have a coach like him, the objective is to win.”

    Juventus remain Scudetto favorite.
    “It’s a great team and they are an important organization. But they will not have an easy time because they have a new coach who will bring new ideas compared to the past. We will keep up with them.”

    Do you like the project that Inter have to become more Italian?
    “This is the choice of the club and so it’s not for me to say. But the more Italian this team is, the better. Stefano and I just got here, but there are also Politano, Gagliardini, Ranocchia, D’Ambrosio. They have given me a nice hand to settle well here.”

    When there is no Brozovic, the Inter midfield could be that of the Italian national team with Gagliardini, Sensi and Barella?
    “Yes, that could happen even though there are also Verratti and Jorginho. The three of us have known each other for a long time and we are well together. But Brozo is important for the team and his absence would be dearly missed.”

    Your idol is Stankovic. Why?
    “Because I have always tried to play like him in the way that on the pitch there is no such thing as friendly and you always go hard, without saving yourselves. Stankovic then added to these values a great shot from outside the box, something I always envy.”

    Is it true that there are many Interisti in your family?
    “It’s something that has been highly discussed. Some of my cousins and uncles are Interisti but my father roots for Cagliari. But now he will also root for Inter and will continue following the Rossoblu.”

    Why did you choose the number 24 shirt?
    “I still don’t know if that will be my shirt number. I took it because it was the day that my first daughter, Rebecca, was born. The other, Lavinia, was born on the 18, the number that I had in Cagliari and the national team.”


    Why did you have the number 18 in Sardinia?
    “The president gave it to me and I was convinced that it would bring me good luck. I listened and luckily he wasn’t wrong.”

    In these years in Serie A, you have learned on how to improve your abilities and to score more. What is the next step for you?
    “To score even more goals because last year I only got one but I struck the posts five times. I was a bit unlucky. I hope that not only I can help Inter by doing a lot of running but also my goals.”

    You arrived at Inter in the summer that Nainggolan is now not in the club’s project.
    “With Radja, we share the same agent but he is also my friend. We are from the same city because he adapted Cagliari to be his own. And we often visit it. I love him.”

    How important is the Italian national team shirt for your maturation?
    “It’s very important and it’s an honor for me. I am happy for the trust that Mancini has given me, allowing me to play next to Jorginho and Verrati. Both of them help me tremendously to get better, to be ready for Inter. Playing next to two champions makes me understand how to play at high level.”

    You played at home for the U-21 European Championship. What went wrong?
    “The lack of qualification for the semifinals and therefore the Olympics was double regret because we could have done better. On the last day, we were not in charge of our own destiny and that at that point, it was normal for two teams to go through after a draw. Regardless of the elimination, there are great players in Italy.”

    What is Barella off the pitch? Those who are around you know that you have passion for NBA and your dog Lebron?
    “Why do you think I called him that? I am a Lebron fan and I’m crazy for him.”

    Your other passion is tattoos?
    “I have 10: the most important are the face of my wife, the first picture with my daughter. Then we have one with my parents and one for my dog. Now I will get one for my other daughter, Lavinia.”

    Do you have place to tattoo a trophy?
    “I have my whole body. The only football related tattoo that I have right now is the bicycle kick goal for Italy.”

    Have you found a home in Milan?
    “I’m still looking. By the way, if someone wants to help me…”
    I believe this only underlines what I`ve been suspecting for a long time: he is the real deal, true character, exactly what kind of men we need. Yes, Nicolò is a 22-year old man, with 2 children already - so he knows what responsibility is.

    And Icardi is head and shoulders above Nicolo's level of responsibility

    Barella isn't ready to be the best midfielder on a Champions League team yet.


    He needs to have other talent around him to reach his best

    Brozovic and Sensi are both talented and they could form a nice trio. Nothing world class obviously, but it would be a major upgrade over what we have seen the last few years.

    Not really seeing how Sensi-Brozovic-Barella is better than Vecino-Radja-Brozovic, much less a major upgrade.
