The Manchester United fans here in the bar at the Football Transfer Tavern have been inundated with rumours from members of staff this week as Jose Mourinho seemingly looks to sign every top player out there, and Marten de Roon.
One name that is getting the punters excited more than most is that of Belgian midfielder Radja Nainggolan, who has been linked with a move to Old Trafford this week.
Further to those links, reports from Gazzetta dello Sport in Italy have reached the bar suggesting that, having looked certain to sign a new deal with Roma the 29-year-old is having doubts amidst the interest from Mourinho who are ready to offer a €7.5m-a-year deal.
Nainggolan has previously made it clear just how happy he is in Rome, however, our landlord reckons that the prospect of working alongside Mourinho at one of Europe’s biggest clubs would be enough to sway even the happiest of players.
The combative midfielder, who scored 14 goals in all competitions last season, has been in the Italian capital for three years now, and could well be ready to make the biggest step up in his career to date.
United fans, we want to hear from you! Do you think Mourinho will land a deal for Nainggolan? Let us know…
