As Manchester United fans brace themselves for the arrival of Nemanja Matic from Chelsea, there could be one more twist in this transfer deal, with Roma’s Radja Nainggolan being lined up as an alternative target.
Matic is reportedly signing for United imminently in a deal worth up to £40 million, but Gazzetta dello Sport claims the same fee — and a wage of £125,000-a-week — could see Nainggolan join instead.
Jose Mourinho has apparently intervened personally to inform Nainggolan’s associates how much he admires him.
The Independent adds that interest in Monaco’s Fabinho stands, with Mourinho willing to play the Brazilian at right-back as well as in midfield.
