Amidst numerous reports linking him to a move away from the Stadio Olimpico, Roma midfielder Radja Nainggolan has come out to assure fans he isn’t going anywhere.
Chelsea have been long-time admirers of the combative midfielder, and with Antonio Conte expected to take over at Stamford Bridge next season, it looks as if the ex-Juventus boss is keen to bring him to London.
Nainggolan took to social media in order to quash suggestions that he would have confided with friends about his willingness to engineer a move away from Roma.
“If I haven’t talked with any club then why would I have discussed anything with friends,” the Giallorossi man posted on his personal Twitter account. “Forza Roma and Forza Belgium tonight [Tuesday]!”
Se non ho ancora parlato con nessun club, perché avrei dovuto parlarne con i miei amici? 😁😁 Forza Roma e forza Belgio per stasera! 🇧🇪

The dynamic midfielder has made 28 appearances for the Eternal City club this season, scoring three goals and making one assist.
It’s not just Nainggolan however, as his teammate Miralem Pjanic has also been targeted by a number of clubs and with Roma seemingly already planning for the future without their Bosnian playmaker.
