Radja Nainggolan is looking increasingly likely to move away from AS Roma this season after Cagliari director Stefano Capozucca has warned they are running out of time to sign him permanently, with Manchester United interested in talking him to Old Trafford.
He is quoted saying by the Manchester Evening News: "We have another 25 days to resolve the situation and find an agreement. If this deal with Roma is not reached, then anything can happen.
"Nainggolan is a player of international quality and it's only natural that many clubs are interested in him.”
Cagliari, who part-own the player, are willing to sell their remaining stake to Roma, however the Italian side are yet to take the opportunity to sign the player outright.
Despite all the rumours linking the Seria A star with a move away this summer, Nainggolan seems keen to stay on at Roma.
He said: "I'm happy here at Roma. We've done very well in my two years here, and I feel perfectly integrated. I hope to continue to do well in this shirt.
"It's well-known that there's the question of ownership which has to be resolved, but I'm happy here."
The Belgian international has scored five goals this season from a deep lying position this season and had an integral role in Roma beating Lazio to second place in the league and qualifying for the Champions League.
Nainggolan has come to be renowned for the intelligence in which he plays the game, an intelligence that reflects off the pitch too, the Belgian can speak four languages fluently.
The 27-year-old actually started the season as a second choice midfielder but he now looks set to be named in the Seria A team of the year alongside other big names like Carlos Tevez, Paul Pogba and Leonardo Bonucci.
