That would be a great contract for the club. Buying the cheap early years with big pays in the later years given the club's financial situation.

In order to save money now we are commiting to a huge salary near the end of his contract. The talks for his next extension, which will probably start when Barella is going to be 27, will be extremely hard. I also have my doubts if he's the right guy to be the next captain.

Not a huge fan of this agreement.

That's the downside of being poor but beggars can't be choosers.

And surely Barella's agent will understand if in 2024 Inter's financial situation is at the level that 7m€ annual net salary is not possible for Barella, solution will be found. Either he's sold for a massive price or if he wants to stay, he accepts lower average annual salary.

There's zero chance Barella is going to accept a paycut when he is at his peak and he can get the best contract of his career. Barella loves Inter but he isn't an idiot.

Many fans and clubs wish the players be one tho, just to keep them around and squeez them like a slave forever.

Instead of signing some fuckers like Hakan, Sanchez and Insigne with huge salaries, we can just give 6 mln to Barella. We all know that if we sell Barella for 80+, his replacement will be someone not so expensive like Nandez, Duncan, Pulgar or similar kind of trash or free agent with huge salary aka Kessie.

I don't think it would be idiotic for Barella to forgo an extra 2-3M in wages to stay at the club he loves and remain surrounded by friends and family. You can't put a price on happiness and comfort.

I also have my doubts if he's the right guy to be the next captain.
I've noticed he's taken over Lukaku's whinging duties of late. It can't be easy playing alongside idiots but surely a captain has to be above that. For me Barella is not a leader of men (few are) and it's unfortunate the armband is being used as incentive to get him to put on pen to paper. We've been down this road before with Icardi, not saying it ll blow up as spectacularly, but for sure I foresee problems arising with such an arrangement.

Who is selling Barella now?

I also don't like if the armband is used as some kind of a reward and incentive. Icardi came to my mind too and curious detail, Barella's wife is 7 years older than him. ;) :D

He is going to extend for way less than what Premier League teams can give him, they can easily make him a 12m/year player, but he did choose Inter, and he is The Chosen One to be the captain.
Have u guys seen Dune? well so he is the main character.
There some things of him both IN and out the field that make u think that he is too young to be the captain of a big team like this, but he will probably mature and will look like 30 year-old guy once he is the new captain:

“A great man doesn’t seek to lead. He’s called to it. And he answers. And if your answer is no, you’ll still be the only thing I ever needed you to be. My son. I found my own way to it. Maybe you’ll find yours.”

Who's earninng 12m/year in EPL other than a very few elite players?

12m net is like 20m gross, which is around 400k/week.

FWIW, De Bruyne is negotiating for a new deal worth 385k/week (GBP)

Despite our financial difficulties, we're still paying top money for the players, 7m net is no joke dude.

I thought of Ranocchia. We gave the armband to him as a reward for the extension in 2014. On the other hand, Icardi's armband wasn't linked to his extension. It was typical Mancini who wanted to take it from Ranocchia and give it to Icardi as he always wants to have a forward as a captain. He even wanted to take the armband from Zanetti and give it to Vieri in his first spell.

That ludicrous shot instead of a pass for Dzeko to tap in is something I would expect from Candreva, not Barella. What a stinker from him today.

He is great and all, but he's just not the type for captain, Škriniar should def get it...
