Roma midfielder Radja Nainggolan admits he could join Chelsea, but is not tempted by the prospect of changing teams.
Radja Nainggolan, 29, has frequently been linked with the Blues over the past two seasons but says he is happy living in Rome.
“If you think about money, I would have changed team two or three times and I would earn more,” he told Sportmagazine.be.
“But I want to live where one is well, for me and my family, there’s nothing missing, we live in the best way, there are good restaurants and you can go shopping. In my future I see myself in Rome, I think that I will stay here.
“I could go to Chelsea or to other teams now, but changing lifestyle and the culture is not for me.”
I’m liked at the club and the supporters are behind me. I’ve given a lot on the field and I get a lot of respect for that. As a footballer, that’s one of the best things you can get. I grew up in Antwerp, but I became a man in Italy. As things stand, I can see myself living in Rome in later life.”
