Nainggolan: “Conte wants me.”


Speaking at a press conference today while on national team duty, Roma midfielder Radja Nainggolan conceded that newly appointed Chelsea manager Antonio Conte wants him at the London club:

“I met with Conte, he wants me to bring me to Chelsea. Also, Courtois and Hazard have asked me to join them in London. However, I want to concentrate on the Euros.”

“What has Conte said to me? I won’t be a player who scores or assists 20 goals, but that I can be important for a team, if this is something a manager appreciates then that’s fine.”

“Will I stay at Roma? We will see. I don’t know. I have always said that leaving Italy after 12 years would be hard.”

“It makes no sense to go to England after all this time in Italy? I’m sure some players would say: why leave and risk everything to go broke there.
