Radja Nainggolan to Chelsea is yet another one of those transfer rumors that seems to never die, and while that’s unsurprising given Antonio Conte’s confirmed interest in the midfielder, Nainggolan’s been basically made the King of the Eternal City and there’s almost no reason for him to ever leave.

Which is basically also how he answers when asked about a potential move to Chelsea by Sky Sports recently.

“Give me the sun I will come. I'm happy. Why give that away to begin again.”

Just the Sun then? Bargain, really; we get to keep both the Moon and the stars as future bargaining chips!

“I watch [the Premier League] a lot. 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."

"Yes. I talked to [Conte last summer]. They were really interested and wanted me over there. That's all I can say."

And since he didn’t completely rule a future Chelsea move out, since nothing can ever truly be ruled out when in comes to transfer rumors, this will no doubt come back around many more times the rest of the season and throughout the summer.
