Il Messaggero: The situation on Nainggolan

Today’s edition of Il Messaggero published an updated on the situation on Roma’s Radja Nainggolan.

Roma own only 50% of Nainggolan’s tag, but they want to own all of it. Reportedly, Roma originally wanted to postpone paying for the other 50% of Nainggolan until June, but with reported interest from clubs abroad – Roma may wrap up a deal for the Belgian in January. Cagliari are hoping to earn nearly €12 million for the other half of Nainggolan – but due to the amicable relationship between Roma and the Sardinian club, this asking price will lower.
