Premier League giants Manchester United have suffered setback in their pursuit of their top target Roma midfielder Radja Nainggolan.
The Serie A club President Jim Pallotta confirms “it’s done” for Nainggolan’s contract extension.
The Belgium international midfielder had a 40-minute summit with directors last night and emerged smiling to speak with fans.
Asked about the Nainggolan renewal while entering the airport this afternoon, Pallotta confirmed: “Yes, it’s done. Finally, no?”
Nainggolan is expected to sign over the next few days, according to Football Italia.
It’ll be a deal to June 2021 worth €4m per year.
He had been of interest to Chelsea, Manchester United and Inter.
Pallotta also stated that the team’s pre-season tour will be in China next year.
