Chelsea FC and Manchester United have been handed a boost with AS Roma set to listen to offers for Radja Nainggolan, according to a report in Italy.

Italian media website Gianlucadimarzio.com, as quoted by Metro, is reporting that Nainggolan could leave the Italian capital in the summer transfer window.

The same article states that AS Roma have held talks with Inter Milan about the sale of the Belgium international ahead of the 2018-19 campaign.

According to the same story, Chelsea FC and Manchester United have a long-term interest in the versatile midfielder over the past few transfer windows.

But the Italian media website is reporting that Nainggolan is more likely to move to the Chinese Super League.

Nainggolan has scored four goals and has made nine assists in 31 games in Serie A in the 2017-18 campaign.

Belgium manager Roberto Martinez controversially omitted Nainggolan from his squad for the World Cup in Russia in 2018.

Nainggolan ended the season on a high note with two goals in AS Roma’s 4-1 win over Liverpool FC, even though the Serie A giants lost on aggregate to Jurgen Klopp’s side.

Manchester United finished in second place in the Premier League table and three spots above Chelsea FC last term.
