Reports: Manchester United Ready To Sign £40m Serie A Star
Premier League giants Manchester United are reportedly ready to offer £40 million for a Serie A midfielder who was once linked with Chelsea.
According to Italian newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, the Red Devils are keen on signing Belgium international Radja Nainggolan.
It has been said that the Old Trafford side are willing to pay Roma up to £40 million (R668 million) for the powerful midfielder.
Jose Mourinho apparently contacted the Belgian's representative about a month ago to express his interest in the player.
Nainggolan is considered to be one of the best players in the Italian top flight, and was also one of Roma's key players last season.
The 29-year-old was heavily linked with Chelsea last season, apparently being seen as the perfect partner for N'Golo Kante at the time.
The Blues have now seemingly decided to pursue other options, opening the door for United to go for him.
Nainggolan's current contract expires in 2020, and it is believed that an offer of an extension from his Italian club is on the table.
The central midfielder made 53 appearances for Roma last season, scoring 14 goals and assisting seven further strikes in all competitions.
With United said to be on the verge of securing Nemanja Matic's signature, can you see them targeting Nainggolan too? Have your say in the comments section below.
