Man United turn attentions to classy 29yo after Dier deal dies: report

Manchester United Football Club have turned their attentions towards Radja Nainggolan, according to the Daily Mail. That’s because our interest in signing Tottenham Hotspur’s Eric Dier has been resisted by the North London club.

The 29-year-old powerhouse would be a stunning piece of business, with the £40million rated Belgian being targeted by a whole host of other clubs including Chelsea and Inter Milan. However, as you’d imagine, AS Roma would likely turn down any approach from a Serie A rival.

Once again, that could mean United and Chelsea going directly head-to-head for the signature of a player, and last time, the Old Trafford club came out on top when they acquired Romelu Lukaku.

Nainggolan is a classy footballer and the prospect of signing the powerhouse is a mouthwatering one. He’d offer that extra protection to the back four, whilst giving us that extra bit of drive and determination going forward – he’s also capable of chipping in with a few goals here and there too.

Jose Mourinho is a huge fan of the Roma man, and you can see exactly what our boss is trying to do right now. He’s building a strong, tall and powerful team, and we all know how successful he has been with those in the past.

Anderlecht’s Leander Dendoncker, 22, is also thought to be a target, as per the aforementioned report.
