Nainggolan to pay for Barella?

Inter could send Radja Nainggolan to Cagliari permanently instead of paying their second instalment for Nicolo Barella, it is claimed.

Nandez the star in Sardinia

In a season of ups and downs for Cagliari, Kaustubh Pandey writes how summer signing Nahitan Nandez has been their shining light thus far...

Cagliari’s campaign began with aplomb, but they’ve come down like a pack of cards in recent months. Rolando Maran was being hailed as the next Italian coach bound to be poached by a bigger club, but he’s already been axed in the wake of an 11-game winless run. Now he has gone and the early-season hype has faded, Nahitan Nandez’s performances should be taking centre stage, giving those bigger sides food for thought.

“I’m handling reclusion pretty well, waiting for news on when we’ll get back to playing. I am starting to lose sense of time, though. We go on the Playstation, watch TV, I have a DJ set that I use sometimes to have fun, otherwise the days all seem the same.”
