Manolas undergoes Roma medical

Kostas Manolas is reported and picture as having completed medical tests, and is expected at Roma’s training ground.

The Greece international is seen as closing in on a €13m transfer to the Giallorossi, after an agreement with Olympiacos was reached.

On from earlier reports that he was already in the capital to complete formalities, Manolas has been pictured arriving and then an hour later leaving medical facilities at Gemelli, in Rome.

Understood to have now completed medical tests here, the player is expected to arrive at Roma’s training facilities at Trigoria this afternoon to put pen to paper on what is believed to be a five-year contract.

Manolas’ arrival is seen as in time for him to be registered to feature against Fiorentina at the weekend, whilst it almost certainly confirms Mehdi Benatia’s exit, as talks with Bayern Munich reportedly have seen an agreement reached.
