The new coach of the Red Devils would be happy to snatch the Greek defender from the Italian capital. Roma want to keep Manolas in January.
Here we go! Daily transfer rumors shake the world of football and in particular the Italian capital. Several Roma players are chased by top European sides and the giallorossi must do everything possible to fend off enemy attacks.
According to the daily Greek newspaper Ethnos, Manchester United would be ready to make an irrefutable offer to Kostas Manolas. The Greece international joined Roma on August 26, 2014, when the Lupi paid a €14 million fee to Olympiacos. Since then, Manolas made 192 appearances with the Italian side scoring 8 goals and 7 assists. The Roma player is one of the best defenders in the world as shown in the 16,261′ minutes played with the giallorossi.
But his current contract worries Monchi and the other executives working at Trigoria. Reportedly, Manolas’ release clause was set to €36m, a very low amount for football powerhouses able to generate unbelievable revenues on a yearly basis. The new coach of the Red Devils, Solskjaer, eyed the Greek center back and he would love him to join his side as soon as possible.
On the other side, Manchester United‘s possible pressure on the defender would justify Roma’s recent interest in Atalanta’s Mancini. Gianluca Mancini’s agent Castelnovo recently confirmed the interest of the Lupi in his client.
