Radja Nainggolan has no regrets over turning down a move to the Premier League.
The Belgium midfielder has revealed he had offers to join both Chelsea and Manchester United before swapping Roma for Inter Milan in the summer.
“I have had plenty of chances to leave. I am the kind of person who above all needs to live well and be at a club which plays to win, or where I am happy with my life.
“In Italy, you live really well — I like the culture and way of life here. Chelsea offered me more money [while at Roma in 2017] and they are a big club, yes.
“But I’m interested in waking up in the morning in a place where I feel good and, at the age of 29, winning back all the respect I’d worked 12 years to earn in Italy was not for me.
“There are lots of components — lots to evaluate. I stayed in Italy, with Roma, because I wanted to end in the best way possible. There was Manchester too. There were many things that I was not interested in at all. Of course you are flattered by the interest, but this is how it is.
“I’ve come to a club who are looking to build something big, so I think I’m in the right place.”
