Nahitan Nandez Close To Cagliari Deal

Jul 29, 2019 6:06 PM

Cagliari are close to signing Nahitan Nandez from Boca Juniors.

Team president Tommaso Giulini also denied that the club were looking to add Radja Nainggolan from Inter.

“Initially, we wanted Marko Rog or Nahitan Nandez, so they were alternatives, but then I got taken over by a moment of madness and it’s possible both will arrive. Having said that, I have to ensure Cagliari still exist as a club next year, so we can’t go overboard with talk of Nainggolan too. As I said, there’s nothing concrete with Nainggolan right now. I expect if he did leave Inter and wanted to stay in Italy, then he’d certainly appreciate Cagliari as a destination," said Giulini.
