Interviewed by the Corriere dello Sport , Marcello Carli , Cagliari sporting director, spoke about his team and Nicolò Barella 's departure to Antonio Conte in the summer: "Giulini held out for the boy, he wouldn't have sold him if not his conditions had been met. But he postponed and took his time. One day we were also summoned by Atletico Madrid, but he had no intention of letting him go, then in the end it was inevitable. Not only that, Maurizio Sarri's Chelsea came forward. Barella amazed me, he is going less on instinct and in this he has Antonio Conte's merits ".
Carli then spoke of Radja Nainggolan 's return to Sardinia: "The Belgian is like a super penthouse in the center of Rome, you don't expect it, but if they propose it to you. We didn't think about taking it for a second, before he had a physical problem "But he is now at the top to unleash all his physical strength. Furthermore, he has so far been an exemplary behaviorist, he has never assumed superdive attitudes."
The Carli article by Barella: "Sarri would have taken it". At Nainggolan: "It was exemplary" seems to be the first on Passioneinter.com.
