Inter could complete a deal that would see them sign Roma midfielder Radja Nainggolan by the end of the month according to a report from Corriere dello Sport.
Inter have always had a strong interest Nainggolan and now they’ve officially started their attack, but there’s a difference in opinion between those who see a negotiation that has just started, in comparison to those who believe it’s close to ending.
The Nerazzurri want the Belgian and after it was made known to the player that he was transferable, he has expressed his desire to be reunited with Spalletti. The idea of closing a deal by the end of the month is more the will of the Giallorossi than the Nerazzurri, because Monchi would like to include Nainggolan’s sale among the capital gains of the 2017-18 season.
The negotiations started with a skirmish over supply and demand, as Roma have interest from China in Nainggolan but there is the will complete the deal. Roma no longer consider the Belgian to be an integral part of the team after they invested in Bryan Cristante and because they realise this is the last chance to make good money on the 30-year-old. Whereas, Inter have heavily suffered this year in the absence of a clinical attacking midfielder and Spalletti has demanded to have his first choice which is Nainggolan.
