Antonio Conte ready to beat United in €30m race for AS Roma No.4

October 22, 2017

Roma star Kostas Manolas is set to sign a new deal contract with the Giallorossi who expect to announce the player’s contract extension after the International break.

The Greece International was close to leaving the Olimpico in the summer as Zenit St. Petersburg reached an agreement with both the player and Roma. However, he failed to show up for medical making his move to Russia collapse.

Manolas is expected to sign a contract extension until 2022. The player’s new salary will be in the region of € 3 million-a-year, but clubs like Chelsea and Manchester United would still have a chance to sign him either in January or the summer.

Both Premier League giants had been linked with a summer move for the Greek last summer, but in the end, they decided to sign Antonio Rudiger (Chelsea) and Victor Lindelof (Man Utd).

According to Il Corriere Della Sera, Manolas wants to add a €30 million release clause in the player’s new deal, and that fee would definitely be affordable for both the Red Devils and the Blues.

Kostas Manolas joined AS Roma in the summer of 2014 from Olympiacos for €15m. He played in 136 games so far and scored three goals for the Italian.
