​Roma have confirmed the departure of Kostas Manolas to Napoli, who will join the club on a five-year deal for a fee of €36m.

Manolas joined Roma back in 2014 and went on to make over 200 appearances for the Serie A outfit during his five seasons at the club, where he also played a starring role during their surprise run to the Champions League semi-finals in 2018.


Roma have confirmed that Manolas has joined ​Napoli in a statement on their ​club website, adding that he has moved for a transfer fee of €36m.

The statement read: "The club can confirm that an agreement has been reached with Napoli for the permanent transfer of Kostas Manolas.

"The Greek defender moves for a transfer fee of €36 million. Manolas joined Roma in the summer of 2014, going on to make 206 appearances for the club in his five seasons in the Italian capital - scoring eight goals.
