Radja Nainggolan looks set to re-join Cagliari on loan from Inter, with the Nerazzurri not wishing to make a severance payment to the Belgian midfielder.

This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, who report that the 33-year-old is set to make a return to the Rossoblu on loan for the third time.

Nainggolan’s move to the Sardinian club has been in discussions for much of the window, with the Nerazzurri wanting to offload the player’s wages and both Nainggolan and Cagliari seeking to make the midfielder’s loan stay from the second half season permanent.

However, the talks have progressed slowly as all parties have struggled to come to an agreement on the financial terms involved in any deal.

It had been reported in recent weeks that the Nerazzurri were working to agree on severance payment with the Belgian in order to pave the way for a move to Cagliari on a permanent basis, but it now looks as though another arrangement has been found, with the player set to join Cagliari on loan during the final year of his Inter contract.
