Reported Chelsea and Manchester United target Radja Nainggolan has signed a new four-year contract with Roma.
The 29-year-old Belgian, who had been linked with a move to the Premier League, has committed to the Serie A club until June 30, 2021.
On Thursday he told asroma.com: “I’ve shown that I always wanted to do this. I’m happy to be here.”
Nainggolan moved to the Stadio Olimpico from Cagliari in January 2014 and has since made 161 appearances for the Giallorossi, scoring 27 goals.
“We are happy that Radja has agreed to spend the most important phase of his career with us,” said Roma president Jim Pallotta.
“Last season he proved he was one of the best midfielders in the world and so it was no surprise he was linked with some of Europe’s biggest clubs.
“But there was never any chance he was going elsewhere, he loves Roma and we’re happy to have him here.”
