Roma’s midfielder Nainggolan joins Inter in £33m swap deal

Roma midfielder Radja Nainggolan has joined Serie A rivals Inter Milan in a swap deal involving Davide Santon and Nicolo Zaniolo.

The former Belgium international, 30, who quit international football after failing to make his country’s World Cup squad, has signed a four-year contract.

The deal values Nainggolan at £33m, with Inter paying £21m and including defender Santon and midfielder Zaniolo.

“Radja Nainggolan is officially a new Inter player,” his new club announced.

Nainggolan, who joined Roma in 2014, only signed a new four-year dealwith the club last summer.

He reached the Champions League semi-finals with Roma in May.

“The Belgian is a real coup for Inter. He is an important player and one that has always been decisive, particularly during his years with the Giallorossi,” Inter Milan sporting director Piero Ausilio told his club’s website.

“He is a top player.”

Meanwhile, Paris St-Germain midfielder Javier Pastore is set to complete a move to Roma.
