How the hell is this not tampering tho?! :lol::lol: Happens all the time in football, where player X is already working on the frameworks of deal AS the season is winding down. (See, Ronaldo to Real Madrid of Di Maria to PSG). 

Pretty sure it's set in stone he'll be in Chelsea blue come August, but not gonna believe until @petre.ispirescu says so with his ITK sources.

According to Sky Sport Italia & ESPN this evening, Chelsea are closer than ever to completing the transfer of Nainggolan. (football-italia)

Chelsea agree Radja Nainggolan transfer deal after lengthy talks with Roma in past 48 hours. (Mirror)

As Chelsea i'd never buy him at such a high price, but as Roma I'd never sell him at such a low price. Perfect player for Tottenham or Atletico but not Chelsea or Real imo. We'll see, i like him regardless.

This guy can be a prick for opposing players. Naingollan is the type of player you would love in your club but absolutely loath as an opponent. Very good midfielder, comparable to a peak Vidal minus the goal scoring. Great engine, covers every blade of grass, great ball winner with a good shot on him.

He seems like a essien type of a player what I seen off him great signing for a club that has no CL football next season

Mirror say deal agreed. Five years, £28m. Fantastic start if true.

Five years? He will be 33 by then. Doubt we would make such deal.

I don't know, we gave Fabregas a similar deal and they're close in age. I think it may be a tax we'll have to pay for not having CL football. Bigger contract to make up for it.

I just hope conte can get matic back to his best 

I just wonder if Matic is comfortable and progressive enough on the ball to start week in and week out for Conte.

You think a player is gonna come over for less than a 5yr deal? never happens like that.

Didn't think he'd leave Italy, but if true this is a fantastic transfer.
He's a hardworking bully, but he also has a good pass, good technique and a very decent long range shot. Very good start to fixing the Chelsea midfield problems. Absolutely essential player to the Belgian NT in my opinion as well. Better than Witsel and much better than Fellaini on that position.

His trademark is also a very rarely seen (& very effective) tackle from behind! It's a real joy to watch because it's so effective and enables him to set up the counter attack really fast!  

Demonstrated numerous times in the video below (0.46, 0,52, 2,36, 2,38!)

What a beast. Such a shame he had to wait until his mid twenties to get true recognition.

Didn't know he is half-Indonesian.

I really hope he can fulfill the expectations, if so we could pair him with another good DM and give Fabregas more freedom going forward.
