"With the Icardi, the husband of Wanda Nara, there was an unsolvable environmental incompatibility, with the Icardi player a possible technical discrepancy: the Argentine does not seem to be the kind of functional center for the game of Conte.
Nainggolan no, writes La Gazzetta dello Sport, the Ninja is Count-compatible. The coach's attempts to take him to Chelsea have remained on record. Nainggolan has everything to impersonate that kind of kombat raider that Conte is looking for to add muscle and nastiness to his midfield. It is a fairly faithful replica of Arturo Vidal, whom Conte would like to have in Inter already in January".
The newspaper also reveals an interesting background: "We think that if he could decide, the Belgian would have remained. "
"One day – said Nainggolan – Conte called me and told me he was" sick "for me and wanted me at Chelsea, but that Inter had made a different decision, shared by him. I told him in person, I appreciate it. " The true reason for the choice, the well-informed suggest, would date back to the first days of Inter's summer retreat in Lugano: Nainggolan's physical test results would not be in line with the high standards required by Conte. Better to divide, without rancor".
