Cagliari have been linked with a sensational deal to bring back Inter midfielder Radja Nainggolan.
Nainggolan is surplus to requirements at Inter and appeared headed for China.
However, Tuttosport claims he could instead opt for a second spell with Cagliari.
The 31-year-old established himself in Italian football with the Rossoblu before his move to Roma in 2014.
Sardinia is also where his wife Claudia - who recently revealed she has cancer - hails from.
For a transfer to happen, the Belgian would need to take a significant drop on his current €4.5m salary.
Nonetheless, he would help fill the void left by Nicolo Barella, who has moved in the opposite direction.
