Radja Nainggolan’s move from Inter to Cagliari could face problems, with the clubs involved unable to reach an agreement as it stands.

This is according to the Rossoblu’s sporting director Stefano Capozucca, who spoke to Italian news outlet L’Interista, where he claimed that the clubs each face difficulties which make finalizing details for the player’s transfer difficult.

Nainggolan was thought to be close to a move to Cagliari on a permanent basis, after he spent the second half of last season on loan in Sardinia, but Capozucca’s words suggest that the clubs are further away from a deal than was previously thought.

Inter are hoping to shift the player’s wages for next season off of their books to save cash in a summer where financial improvement is on the agenda, while Cagliari want the Belgian but cannot go over their budget to bring him to the Sardegna arena, having financial restrictions of their own.

The sporting director stated:

“There is still much missing for the Belgian’s move  to Cagliari. There are big problems to solve. Inter’s difficulties are well-known, and at the same time we have ours. It will not be an easy situation to resolve.”
