Cellino admits more players could be sold this month.
He said: “If tomorrow I was asked about Astori or others, I would let them go. I cannot protect my boys and so I could give them all away, as was the case for Nainggolan.
“Zenit were willing to pay €25m last summer, Juventus offered €20m and were prepared to let me have him until the end of the season, like with [Fabian] O’Neill.
“And Radja, the next day, came home and extended his contract. But he could not stay here. How can he grow in a team with no ambition?
“He has gone to Roma, on a loan of €3m. There he will grow with champions like Totti and De Rossi, a good Coach and a club that already loves him.
“If I had pocketed €20m, what would we have done?”
