Barella was linked with a £45m move to Stamford Bridge at the beginning of the year as a replacement for Cesc Fabregas, but the deal failed to go through. The Italian has topped the passing charts for the Serie A side this season and was tipped to form a formidable partnership with Jorginho in midfield. 

In an interview with Calciomercato, Barella revealed why his transfer to Chelsea failed to go through, "I’ve never spoken about transfers with other clubs. I said I wanted to stay at Cagliari until the end of the season and I’ve spoken with nobody so far. There are some transfer rumours, it means that I am doing well."
