I'm excited by this move. Probably the most I've been excited about an Inter midfielder in a long time. Kid is impressive already and is only going to get better. With one of the best coaches in football at the helm, the sky is the limit for Nico.

Him, Brozo and possibly Ninja make for a hot headed trio though lol. Let's hope they rein it in a bit or we're gonna be accumulating a lot of yellow cards.

So his wife is 7 years older? Good thing she isnt his agent

Kid is only 22 and has two children already, and if you gauge the timeline, this means he got together with her when he was 18-19 years old. Only thing I have to say to that is that, if he had game to be getting together with a 25 year old when he was just turning legal age (by US standards, anyway), then, well, bravo. I know I could've never done it.

You guys keep mentioning his name next to Nainggolan and Brozovic but I kind of have feeling Conte wants an Italian trio in midfield consisting of Sensi, Barella and Gagliardini.

He also put a child in her a year after they got together, a year before they married. This smells of Wanda style older-woman puppetry to me

Legal age in italy is lower than the states I believe? Devious probably knows all the stats.

2 footed challenge, studs showing. Straight red IMO.

I naturally assumed that was Barella dribbling, but obviously not. Why is the highlight of that video a tackle. Is Barella a DM? A destroyer? Vice-Medel?

I think Barella will add some much needed control and ball retention to our midfield, which is exactly what Sensi will also provide, but whatever. With his nice long range passes he'll be able to switch play from each flank quickly and effectively. He can also give a nice ball forward from time to time.

But I really hope no one is expecting him to be a 'take the game by the scruff of the neck' game-winning, uber-influential midfield general, because he is not. And this is what we still lack. Sure, it's a team game and if Conte has the right pieces and gets the most out of them, then maybe we'll be fine without such a player. As far as I'm concerned, I would take all that money we intend to spend on Lukaku and use it buy such a midfielder to not only elevate our midfield, but get the most out of Barella & co.

exactly why I believe SMS coming here would make so much sense. There is probably less than 30% chance we get him tho.

We still need at least one striker too. Even if we keep Icardi.

Confusing promo video. The other ones were much better.

Don't have one.
Yeah video is nothing special and sooner or later this will become unoriginal and stale, i don't even know why they decided to make videos for every single player that comes here, you would have to have god like imagination and talent to produce high quality videos in that many numbers, without it becoming more of the same.

It would be much nicer imo to have one really cool and imaginative idea and concept, that can become recognizable over time, into which you present every player, then this constant trying to do something new every time.

Yes. The first ones were nice indeed but this one plain sucked. Waiting for at least few more.

Welcome Nicolò. He's indeed one of us and finally where he belongs.

With that being said, being interista is one thing, bearing the heavy weight of the maglia nerazzurra on the pitch (and possibly stepping up in the process) is another. “May the Personality be with him”, but Barella is already promising in that department and seems to know how to use it (meanwhile, the future of his controversial friend and mentor Obi-Nain Golanobi is still uncertain - forza Claudia, by the way).

The presentation video is a bit of a filler, but we can hope Inter Media House will be given the opportunity to deliver a couple more masterpieces in the next few weeks, maybe with a grand finale, with all due proportions.

I have no doubts in my mind a guy like Barella will excel in virtually any team. He might not be a world beater (so far at least) but he has that Toro determination and drive to succeed.

They probably had 1 afternoon to complete the video while the earlier ones they had them ready for some time especially Godin.

Doesn't appear like the brightest of chaps. He gives me the feeling that Barella is probably better and more comfortable with his feet doing the talking than his mouth.
