Radja Nainggolan close to finalising Guangzhou Evergrande move

AS Roma midfielder Radja Nainggolan is reportedly close to finalising a loan move to Guangzhou Evergrande.

The Belgian international has been linked with moves to Chelsea and Manchester United but will now quit Europe for the riches of the Far-East.

According to Chinese newspaper Information Times, Guangzhou Evergrande are confident of securing a loan-deal move for Radja Nainggolan in this January.

Nainggolan is expected to earn €12m a year at Guangzhou and also receive a €20m signing-on fee, with his agent banking €10m.

Guangzhou boss Fabio Cannavaro is looking to replace Paulinho who joined Barcelona last summer.

The deal is expected to be an initial loan with an obligation to make it permanent before the end of June.
