This is going to be an active summer for Roma in the transfer window. The Greek defender is on the agenda of many top European sides and his release clause is easily accessible.
Although Monchi is negotiating many young talented midfielders to strengthen Roma’s offensive side, the Spaniard knows the current summer transfer window could be really long and bloody.
“I don’t know anything about Marseille’s interest in my client,” said Manolas’ agent to the French portal ‘Foot01’. “He was linked to many European clubs but this is normal because he is a very good player. The summer transfer window will begin soon.”
Although these words should reassure the Roma fans, the situation could develop in many different ways.
Kostas Manolas‘ contract is set to expire on June 30, 2022, but in the agreement with the Giallorossi there’s a €36 million release clause easily accessible by the European powerhouses.
Reportedly, Chelsea, Borussia Dortmund, Juventus, and Real Madrid are interested in the Greek defender. Although the player has demonstrated his affinity with the club, Di Francesco, and the city, he could be offered an irrefutable long-term contract.
Marcano‘s arrival in the Italian capital could be explained in this way. Monchi wanted to cover Manolas’ possible departure with an experienced defender who played in the Champions League for several years. If the Greek will say goodbye, another defender would be purchased quickly.
Kostas Manolas has not received an offer yet but the summer is long and August is far away.
