Published Add your comment

Roma midfielder Radja Nainggolan has insisted that he's not thought about leaving the club behind this summer, but has admitted that anything can happen. 

As reported by fourfourtwo, Belgium international, who has enjoyed a fine campaign in Italy's elite division, has also admitted that he regularly watches the Premier League duo of Chelsea and Tottenham.

It's the duo of Manchester United and Liverpool, though, that have been linked with the player's signature, with reports claiming that he could be on the move for around £25 million in the near future.

It's far from certain, however, as to whether either club step up their interest in the midfield ace anytime soon, but it appears that he's not thinking about his future. 

He told fourfourtwo: “I haven’t put much thought into it [a move].

"I’ve been focusing on our race for a Champions League place. All I’ll say is: I’m very happy in Rome. After all this time, I’m practically half-Italian and it feels like home. I speak six languages, but I’m not looking to move to another country. Then again, anything can happen at this level. We'll see what happens.

“[The Premier League] is certainly the most talked-about competition in the world. I regularly watch the games of my Belgian friends at Chelsea and Spurs, and there are a lot of world-class players.”

Cech remains unsure 

Blues 'keeper Petr Cech, meanwhile, has admitted that he's still unsure as to whether he will be at the club next season. 

As reported by the Mirror, the Czech Republic international, who lost his first-team place to Belgian ace Thibaut Courtois last term, has insisted that he will make a decision regarding his future after next week's Euro 2016 qualifiers. 

When asked if he will play for Chelsea again, he responded by saying: “I don’t know.

“I will fly back now and join the national team. Then when the season is over I will weigh up my options and decide.I won’t think about it now. When the decision is made I will tell you.

“At the moment it’s all just speculation. I’m not even thinking about it. I’m just going back to join the national team and then I will think about it.”

Chelsea close in on Falcao loan deal

Chelsea are closing in on the loan signing of former Manchester United striker Radamel Falcao, according to David Woods of the Daily Star.

Falcao, who endured a torrid campaign at Old Trafford under guidance of Louis van Gaal last term, may well be set for a second stint in the Premier League, with Blues boss Jose Mourinho seemingly ready to bring him to Stamford Bridge. 

A Chelsea source told Woods: "Talks have been going well and Jose is still a big fan of Falcao, despite the difficult time he had at United.

"It looks like the deal is going to happen."
