Cellino: 'Astori and Nainggolan stay'

“Davide Astori and Radja Nainggolan will remain with Cagliari,” announced President Massimo Cellino.

Rumours had emerged of deadline day negotiations with Milan for defender Astori and Juventus for Nainggolan.

However, Cellino made his point by leaving Milan and the transfer market HQ several hours before the deadline.

“I have no intention of upsetting our fans,” he told TMW and the official club website. “Astori and Nainggolan will remain with Cagliari.”

Milan Vice-President Adriano Galliani also assured there would be no talks for Astori or anyone else after taking Kaka from Real Madrid.

“Our market, in terms of arrivals, can be considered closed.”
