AntwerpStrong transfer on Bosuil. Radja Nainggolan (33) traveled to Belgium to complete the move to Antwerp. Except for problems with medical exams, nothing stands in the way of a deal. Follow all the news below in LIVEBLOG.
A new attraction in our fields. Nainggolan will soon fly to Belgium to sign a contract with Antwerp. The deal is about to expire. Radja still has to undergo medical examinations in our country.
The midfielder canceled his contract with Inter and had several options – like Besiktas and Cagliari. Radja demands for wages are not lower, but in Bosuil they want to meet them. Antwerp doesn’t want to say much about wage figures just yet, although Nainggolan certainly won’t become a small source of income in the Belgian competition. Given the promotion bonus he still receives at Inter, the midfielder has agreed to a lower wage than he was being paid in Italy. The bonus for signing up is around 2 million euros per year.
Moving comes with an emotional side. Nainggolan played for city rival (Germinal) Beerschot until he was sixteen. Then he went to Italy. First with Piacenza and Cagliari, then he joined the big clubs AS Roma and Inter, who loaned him to Cagliari again over the past two seasons. Nainggolan is also a 30-time international player.
