‘Alisson to Madrid, Nainggolan to Inter’

A Neapolitan website quotes Roma President James Pallotta as saying Alisson “is close to Real Madrid” while Radja Nainggolan “will go to Inter”.

The American owner was pictured in Naples going for a pizza at the Concettina ai Tre Santi restaurant, and was asked by AreaNapoli whether he’d sell Alisson to the Partenopei.

“No, [President Aurelio] De Laurentiis doesn’t want to spend that kind of money,” Pallotta is quoted as saying.

“Alisson costs a lot, you need €78m. He’s close to Real Madrid while Nainggolan will go to Inter.”

It should be noted though that there is no video of the encounter, and as Pallotta would have been speaking in English it’s possible there was a misunderstanding.
