Thursday was the four-year anniversary of Chelsea. Just. Not. Letting. Go. In. The. Champions. League. Friday is apparently the four-day (four-week?) anniversary of Chelsea. Just. Not. Letting. Go. Of. Radja. Nainggolan. That's what the Telegraph's claiming at any rate.
Chelsea transfer news: Roma's Radja Nainggolan remains Antonio Conte's primary summer target https://t.co/LSLmFKhlGI pic.twitter.com/QW9HXzpFO1— Telegraph Football (@TeleFootball) May 20, 2016
Apparently Nainggolan remains Conte's first priority signing and even though Roma have rejected a bid already and have maintained a stance of not selling, and the player himself has repeatedly denied any intentions to leave, Chelsea are willing to throw enough money at the situation (£32m with a "significant" pay rise) to make those concerns go away and remind the midfielder that it's all about money and glory and not the smelly mob in the stands.
To show just how serious we are, Marina Granovskaia, fresh off her big win with Nike and smoothing out the Terry contractual situation, has been put on the case. Even more powerful than the Mourinho phone call!
