Roma midfielder Nainggolan explains resisting Man Utd, Chelsea offers

Roma midfielder Radja Nainggolan has spoken of turning down Manchester United and Chelsea.

Reports claim United and Chelsea were set to make big-money bids for Nainggolan, with Chelsea attempting to land him the year before as well.

Nainggolan told CNN Sports: “Roma was the best choice for me and my family, I'm happy here.

“I am 29 years old and I thought well of what to do and what was best. And what was best and best for me and my family was to stay in Rome.

“It's not just a matter of money. I have so many ambitions but I think that you must first be happy and live well and I'm happy to play here."
