Serie A giants ready to sell £43m Man Utd target this summer
Roma are considering offloading star midfielder Radja Nainggolan before June 30 in an effort to comply with Fifa’s Fair Play rules, reports say.
The Italian giants must sell one of their top players to meet Financial Fair Play rules and have earmarked Nainggolan as one possible transfer departure.
Liverpool target Mohamed Salah and defender Kostas Manolas are also possible outgoings with the Reds reportedly closing in on the signing of the former.
Calciomercato claim Manchester United, Chelsea and Inter Milan are eagerly awaiting Roma’s final decision as they consider making offers for the Belgium international.
Roma would demand up to £43million for Nainggolan who is a favourite of Chelsea boss, Antonio Conte.
The Chelsea manager tried to sign Nainggolan last summer, but the Blues could not come to an agreement with Roma over a transfer fee.
Nainggolan admitted he had spoken to Conte and was ready to join his Chelsea revolution before talks broke down.
The midfielder also revealed recently that he believes Conte may be still sore over the failed transfer as he has yet to get back in touch over a fresh move.
United too have long been linked with Nainggolan who admitted this month that links to Old Trafford ‘may be true’.
Nainggolan is a key member of Roma’s side and missed just one game last season, captaining the side on 12 occasions.
The 29-year-old is a goalscorer as well as a creator with 14 strikes to his name last campaign alongside seven assists.
Even if a club offers the set asking price, Roma are not guaranteed to accept the bid.
Roma are eager to see how their negotiations with Liverpool over Salah progress.
Liverpool and Roma seem to be some way apart in terms of a fee, but talks are ongoing and the Reds remain confident a deal can be struck with Fifa’s deadline breathing down the Serie A side’s neck.
