"Yes, I can confirm Barcelona are tracking him," Bardi's agent Vincenzo Rispoli told Calciomercato.it.
"There are observers from many European clubs following him and I too heard, through unofficial channels, that Barcelona were interested.
"I have not had any formal contact with the Catalan club, as the player is under contract with Inter and I always respect those roles. If Barcelona do want Bardi, then they will have to discuss it with the Nerazzurri first.
"Francesco is relaxed, happy to be playing for Livorno and to be an Inter player. These rumours are certainly gratifying and I'd be a hypocrite to suggest otherwise, but I think Livorno and Inter appreciate them too. After all, it means Bardi is a goalkeeper of great quality, without forgetting he is only 21 years old."
