Roma hero Aldair understands why Napoli want Manolas

AS Roma hero Aldair admits he's a fan of Kostas Manolas.

The Roma defender is a target for Napoli.

“We all know how decisive Manolas has been over the years for Roma," Aldair told TuttoNapoli.it.

“With (Kalidou) Koulibaly, he'd form such a quick centre-back pairing, not to mention one of the strongest defensive partnerships in Europe. Koulibaly is better at passing it out from the back, while Manolas has more quality in front of goal when he goes up.

“I really like Koulibaly and if he has a quick defender like Manolas by his side, he can become even better. Of course, I hope for Roma's sake that the move doesn't happen."
