Cagliari midfielder wanted Juventus switch

Cagliari midfielder Radja Nainggolan has admitted today that he wanted to join Juventus when they made an offer for him last year.

The Belgian international was discussing a potential move to the Bianconeri which fell through and says he was disappointed that it did so.

Speaking with Sky Sports, he said: “From what I have read in the newspapers, Juventus offered €15m for me last year in January and yes I wanted to join them but I do not pay any notice to transfers or numbers or any of that.

“I do not even know how much money Cagliari paid for me when they bought me from Piacenza.”

Despite the deal not going ahead last time, there is a good chance that the Old Lady could come back in for the 24-year-old this summer and although they are the favourites to secure his signature, AC Milan and Napoli also remain interested. VIP Lounge
