European giant rule out sale of star duo to Chelsea

NainggolanChelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern are expressing disappointment after hearing that a big club have ruled out selling two of their prized assets to Antonio Conte’s side this summer.

The Evening Standard states that Roma have refused to sell two Chelsea targets to the west London club, as they insist Radja Nainggolan and Antonio Rudiger will both be staying at the Italian giants.

President James Palotta insisted they have intention to sell the star duo, amidst speculation that Conte is eyeing a raid on the Rome-based outfit.

“I keep telling all of you that Nainggolan’s not going anywhere.  We have no intention to sell Rudiger. We don’t want to sell anyone, the squad fits perfectly so.”

Chelsea have both of the Roma duo on their radar as they look to bolster their underperforming squad from last term, though our landlord feels they’ll only be able to sign one ace from Roma this summer before the club dig their heels in.

Which of this pair would be better suited to Chelsea? Let us know in the comments below!
