Man United want to make top 29-year-old their third summer signing – report
Manchester United are set for a transfer battle with Chelsea for the signature of Radja Nainggolan, say reports
Manchester United are set for a transfer battle with Chelsea after turning their attentions towards signing Radja Nainggolan from Roma, according to reports in the British media.
The Daily Mail is reporting that Manchester United are set to step up their interest in signing the Belgian midfielder this summer as Tottenham continue to resist their interest in Eric Dier.
The same report claims that Chelsea were previously close to signing the 29-year-old Nainggolan in the past and although the Blues are closing in on Tiemoue Bakayoko from Monaco, the west London side could still make a move for the Roma man.
The story also reports that Inter Milan have shown significant interest in trying to sign Nainggolan this summer but Roma do not want to sell the player to a domestic rival.
The article also states that the player himself would be open to leaving Roma this summer – and that Jose Mourinho is a “firm admirer” of the Belgium international.
The Red Devils are also said to have monitored his performances for the last six months and have been impressed with what they’ve seen.
Manchester United confirmed their second signing of the summer on Monday when they wrapped up a deal to land Romelu Lukaku from Everton.
