Manchester United have been dealt a transfer blow by the news that Radja Nainggolan has signed a new deal with Roma.

The Red Devils have been linked with a move for the Belgian all summer.

However, any potential bid now appears to be dead in the water after Roma president James Pallotta, speaking to journalists before heading to the US for a pre-season tour, claimed a new deal ‘was done’.

Inter Milan were also keen, and Chelsea pursued the 29-year-old for much of last summer, but Nainggolan has apparently opted to extend his stay in the Italian capital instead.
