OFFICIAL: Italian winger Matteo Politano joins Napoli on loan from Inter


Inter winger Matteo Politano has completed a move to Napoli on loan for the remainder of the season, in a deal which includes an obligation to buy.

The 26-year-old has struggled to make an impact at San Siro and was tipped to join Roma this month, even posing for pictures with a Giallorossi scarf before the deal collapsed.

Napoli only recently emerged as a potential destination for Politano, but the club have already confirmed the arrival of the Italy international on an initial 18-month loan.

Politano will become a permanent player at the Stadio San Paolo at the end of next season, with Napoli expected to pay in the region of €19m for his signature.

The former Inter winger is among a host of players who have been moved on since Antonio Conte’s arrival at the club, while others are also looking for a transfer before the January window closes later this week.

The Nerazzurri confirmed the arrival of Christian Eriksen on Tuesday, while Ashley Young and Victor Moses also joined Inter earlier this month. The club also signed 12 new players during the summer transfer window.

As well as Politano’s move away from San Siro, Brazil international Gabriel Barbosa has returned to Flamengo in a €17m deal.

The 23-year-old has spent the last 12 months on loan in Rio de Janeiro, where he’s scored 34 goals and claimed 11 assists across all competitions.
