Serie A star refuses to rule out Chelsea move
Rona midfielder Radja Nainggolan claims he spoke to Chelsea boss Antonio Conte about a move to Stamford Bridge last summer and admits he watches the Premier League, calling it the “best in the world”, per Sky.

“Give me the sun I will come,” he joked.
“I’m happy. Why give that away to begin again?
“They (Chelsea) were really interested and wanted me over there. That’s all I can say.”
The diminutive midfielder admita he watches the Premier League, where a lot of his interntional teammates play, and stopped short of ruling out a future move.
“I watch it a lot,” he continued.
“A lot of my team-mates play there. It’s the best league in the world.
“We have to make choices in life. I am having a good season. When the window opens we will talk about it again.”
