Cagliari midfielder Radja Nainggolan is set to come up against his parent club when the Sardinians take on Inter in Serie A tomorrow, after enduring a difficult spell with the Nerazzurri.

The Belgian joined Inter under Luciano Spalletti in 2018 but failed to convince successor Antonio Conte, leading to two loan spells at former club Cagliari, the most recent coming in January.

As reported in today’s newspaper edition of Corriere dello Sport, Nainggolan was unhappy with his treatment under Conte and attempts to reconcile with the coach proved unsuccessful, prompting his second move to Sardinia.

Nainggolan is expected to start for a Cagliari side struggling in the relegation zone at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza tomorrow, but will have added motivation to secure a positive result against Inter, in addition to proving they were wrong to offload him twice.

The former Roma player has no intention of returning to Inter and is keen to remain at Cagliari, despite having a year remaining on his contract with the Nerazzurri. However, should Cagliari suffer relegation this season a return would become almost impossible.
