Sky Italia: Distance on Nainggolan’s renewal

According to Sky Italia, Roma and Radja Nainggolan’s reprsentatives are working on the contract renewal of the Belgian, but a gap remains between the player’s demands and what the club is willing to offer.

Reportedly, the Belgian is asking for a contract similar to that of Miralem Pjanic’s (€3 million net per season) but the club, as of now, are not offering a figure that high. However, it is likely that the sides will come to an agreement because, unlike the situation of Mehdi Benatia, the Belgian has a very strong desire to remain in Rome.
