The Belgian midfielder joined the Nerazzurri from Roma in 2018 in a €24 million deal that saw Nicolò Zaniolo and Davide Santon head in the opposite direction.
But he only played 41 times for Inter in three years and returned on loan to Cagliari, who he is now expected to join on a free transfer, according to Gianluca Di Marzio.
Turkish side Besiktas had been interested in the 33-year-old but Nainggolan is set to remain in Italy, where he has spent the entirety of his professional career.
Nainggolan and his representatives were at Inter's headquarters today and it was agreed he would receive 50 per cent of his remaining salary at the San Siro.
His contract had been due to expire in 2022. Portuguese midfielder Joao Mario was able to come to a similar agreement, with his deal terminated prematurely by mutual consent to allow him to sign a five-year deal with Benfica earlier this summer.
Nainggolan made 137 appearances in his first spell with Cagliari, before turning out 51 times on loan in 2019/20 and 2020/21.
