Nicola is a graduate of Cagliari. In July 2011 he was promoted to first team squad. However, only made his debut on 20 December 2011, in a 0-2 home loss against Milan. However, he became “Rossoblu” first team player only this season. He is one of the biggest revelations of Serie A recently and thanks to this much stronger clubs than Cagliari, such as AC Milan or Juventus, are strongly interested in buying the talented left back, but despite that not so long ago Murru extended his contract with Cagliari. He represented Italy on U-17 and U-18 levels, now he is a member of “Squadra Azzurra” U-19 team.



“He is a player that already proved his potential, but still has a lot to learn.”

(Luigi Di Biagio – former Italian international, Italy U-21 coach)
