Kolarov completes Roma exit as Inter sign defender for €1.5m

Roma have sold Aleksandar Kolarov to Inter Milan.

The move brings an end to Kolarov’s three-year stay at Roma, where he overcame an initially skeptical reception to become a regular starter.

News emerged recently that Inter were considering a move for the left-back, and that has now materialised into a transfer.

Roma receive a fee of €1.5m for the player, whom they signed from Manchester City for €5m in 2017. Inter could pay Roma a further €500,000 in add-ons.

Kolarov soon became a leader after joining Roma, and proved himself as an excellent free kick taker.

However, he will now be lending his talents to a new club, after Antonio Conte made a big push to take him to Inter.

Kolarov’s contract at Roma was due to expire next summer, making this the last real chance to make some money from him.

In total, the Serbia captain made 132 appearances for Roma, scoring 19 goals. He also added 20 assists.

Roma may opt against signing a replacement for Kolarov, with Leonardo Spinazzola the first-choice left-back and Riccardo Calafiori potentially ready to receive more first team opportunities.

Calafiori made his senior debut in the last game of the 2019-20 Serie A season, and the academy graduate could now be shown even more faith from Roma.
