Inter midfielder Radja Nainggolan is set to join Cagliari on loan, though it remains to be seen how much of his salary will be covered by the Nerazzurri.
This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, who report that the two clubs are still working out how much the Nerazzurri will pay the Belgian as an incentive to leave and how much of the net €4.5 million wages owed on the final year of his Nerazzurri contract the Rossoblu will be on the hook for.
Nainggolan has been expected to make the move to Cagliari for much of the summer, having spent the second half of last season on loan in Sardinia and wanting his stay to be extended.
The Rossoblu want to bring him in and the Nerazzurri want to offload him, but so far an economic agreement which is satisfying to all parties has still not been found.
This looks set to change, with the Nerazzurri deciding to avoid the capital loss on the balance sheet which would come with terminating his contract by sending him out on loan, and the player joining the Rossoblu on loan.
A portion of the 33-year-old’s substantial wages will be covered by the Nerazzurri, but as of yet it remains to be worked out between the clubs exactly how much.
However, it is clear that the player looks set to finally leave after much discussions regarding a move.
