Cagliari sporting director Marcello Carli discussed the unclear future of Inter owned midfielder Radja Nainggolan in an interview with Italian media outlet earlier today.

“There’s nothing new at the moment. Our priority, as it is for everyone at the moment, is not the transfer market but restarting the season. I haven’t heard from Marotta or anyone else at Inter yet, we’ll see what we will do next.”

Nainggolan joined Inter in the summer of 2018 but struggled to make a strong impact in his first season in Milan under coach Luciano Spalletti. Following the appointment of former Juventus and Chelsea boss Antonio Conte last summer, the player was quickly shuttled off away from the Lombard capital, being sent to former home Cagliari.

The 32-year-old Belgian midfielder has been a hit in Sardinia this season, being one of the stars in the squad and helping them in their early surge up the league table.

Nainggolan has made 24 appearances across all competitions so far this season, for a total of 1943 minutes. In that time, he has scored five goals and provided six assists. Cagliari are interested in keeping the player but may not be able to afford the deal or his wages.
