Roma ace Radja Nainggolan insists he will not join Chelsea


Radja Nainggolan insists he loves being at Roma and does not fancy a move to Premier League leaders Chelsea.

The Belgium international was on Antonio Conte’s transfer target list in the last summer transfer window and the Blues boss was keen to bring him to Stamford Bridge.

Nainggolan rejected Chelsea’s offer and stayed in the Italian capital, where he has been one of the stand-out performers in the Serie A under Luciano Spalletti.

Chelsea are expected to try to sign him again this summer but the 28-year-old has reiterated his love for the Wolves and admitted moving to England is not for him.

“I’m happy in Rome, the weather is usually good and my family are fine here.” Nainggolan said.

“Sometimes you make choices for money, other times it’s for quality of life, which is important for me.

“Also if I went to England, I’d have to start from scratch and I’m very happy at Roma.

“China? Not now, but you can never rule anything out. I’d have to see at the time.”
