Inter remain keen to send Radja Nainggolan out on loan despite the midfielder’s desire to stay with Antonio Conte, according to Corriere dello Sport.
Nainggolan was excluded from Sunday’s victory against Lugano and he will again be left out of Inter’s prestige friendlies against Manchester United, Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain.
The midfielder is at least part of the Nerazzurri’s squad for their preseason tour in Asia, where he will train as normal with the rest of the first team.
“He wants to convince Conte to give him another chance but he doesn’t stand much of a chance,” the paper assured this morning.
Nainggolan scored seven goals during a difficult debut campaign with Inter, which was plighted by physical issues and disciplinary problems.
Corriere also confirmed Alessandro Bastoni had joined up with the squad since last week’s training camp in Switzerland, having finished his summer holidays after playing for Italy at the under-21 Euros in June.
