The defender of the giallorossi attracted the interest of Real Madrid. Manolas has a very ‘comfortable’ release clause on his contract.
The last Serie A clash Roma-Inter has been important on and off the field. Although the penalty on Zaniolo has driven the discussions since the end of the game, rumors are also talking about important sightings on the stands of the Stadio Olimpico.
Reportedly, an emissary of the Spanish powerhouse was watching the match on Sunday. As mentioned by the Italian outlet Tuttomercatoweb.com, Real Madrid are primarily interested in Mauro Icardi but also in Kostas Manolas.
Despite Roma‘s unwillingness to sell their skilled defender, Manolas has a very low release clause on his contract, €36 million.
The Greece international has always stated that he is happy in the eternal city but it’s always tough to say no to the most famous club in the world.
Eventually the Blancos could only make an offer to the player next summer. Manolas’ buyout clause should not be valid in the winter transfer window.
Monchi, however, could try to change that clause as soon as possible in order to make it more profitable for the club of Trigoria. Another option, instead, could be to remove the clause announcing Manolas’ permanent stay in the Italian capital.
