Jose Mourinho is a fan of the Belgium star and has been linked with a move to take him to Manchester United in this transfer window.
Mourinho is looking to strengthen his midfield ahead of the addition of Champions League football to the Red Devils’ schedule next season.
The Portuguese won three pieces of silverware in his first campaign in charge, with the Europa League success against Ajax qualifying them for Europe’s elite club competition.
And former USA Michallik says not only would Nainggolan improve United, he would also help get the best out of potential midfield partner Paul Pogba.

I can understand why Jose Mourinho’s been after Radja Nainggolan for a long, long time now
I can understand why Jose Mourinho’s been after him for a long, long time now.
“I don’t know if it’s going to happen, it’s a funny one.
Janusz Michallik reckons Radja Nainggolan would improve Man Utd midfielder Paul Pogba
“He’s very much like Vidal, you and I joke that if Jose Mourinho had a chance to get (Arturo) Vidal, Nainggolan and (N’Golo) Kante, that would be the midfield and he would make that midfield happen somehow.
I think that should be a priority over anything there, I think he would help Paul Pogba tremendously as well.
So for me this is a hit and it should happen and I somehow think it will happen.”
