Nicolo Barella could have made a big money transfer in January to Chelsea, but the Blues decided not to pursue the Italian midfielder. The 21-year-old Barella is one of the brightest talents in Football Manager 2019.
It’s quite difficult to sign Barella in the first transfer window in FM19. He has a long-term contract and Cagliari realises the talent Barella has. We tried to sign him with Manchester City and we managed to secure a deal on a 51M transfer fee and several clauses added to the bid. That is a big fee, but Barella is totally worth it.

Nicolo Barella – 2028
After simulating 10 seasons the midfielder has developed pretty well. He was sold to Man City in the first transfer window for 51M and he would then play a total of 3 seasons for the English giants. He was then picked up by FC Barcelona, who were prepared to pay a staggering 104M for the midfielder. He is currently in his 7th season at the Blaugranas and has played 275 games for the club.
During his career Barella won the Premier League and FA Cup with City, the World Cup with Italy in 2022 and three Spanish league titles with Barcelona. Unfortunately Barella has not won any major European trophies with either Man City or FC Barcelona.
