Nainggolan picks Inter shirt number

Radja Nainggolan is so close to leaving Roma for €35m plus youth team player Nicolò Zaniolo that he has reportedly chosen his Inter shirt number.

According to Tuttosport, a medical is expected at the start of July, as they must wait until after June 30 to include it in the next financial year.

The cost of the operation is expected to be in the region of €30-35m plus Primavera creative midfielder Zaniolo, who turns 19 next month.

There are even suggestions Nainggolan will use the 22 jersey, but with an Ivan Zamorano style + in between the two numbers.

That’s because the Belgian’s usual 4 has been retired following Javier Zanetti’s lengthy Inter career, while Ivan Perisic has had 44 for some time.

Zamorano famously took on the shirt 1+8 because Ronaldo already had 9.
