More from Radja Nainggolan:
“We’ve talked. He (Conte) already wanted me at Juve, but I told him that I would never go there,” said Nainggolan.
“Now he’s trying to convince me to go to Chelsea and we’ve had a chat about it. He’s an interesting person. We’ll see. I don’t know.
“We’ll just have to see what happens. Certainly Conte’s a good coach -you could see that at Juve, where he won, and also at Siena.
“He’s told me what he expects of me and what type of a player I could be for him.
“It’s important to know that a coach wants you so much. I’m not a player who scores 20 goals a season and provides 20 assists, but he appreciates the silent work that I do.”
