Inter cannot sell Radja Nainggolan for anything less than €19.5 million this Summer to avoid making a capital loss on him according to a report in today’s print edition of Tuttosport.

The former Belgian national team player was deemed to be out of Inter’s project this past Summer by Inter management and was subsequently loaned out to Cagliari, just a year after joining the club from fellow Serie A side Roma.

The 31-year-old’s €4.5 million annual salary makes a permanent move to Cagliari unlikely and he could therefore return to Inter this Summer and be moved on elsewhere.

The report from the Turin based newspaper does state that he could get another loan move to Cagliari but Inter would not be willing to pay any of his wages.

Whilst out on loan in Sardinia, the former Piacenza player has made 24 appearances across all competitions to date, in which he has scored five goals and provided six assists.
