Four clubs want Monchi

Four clubs, including Manchester United and Barcelona, are interested in Roma sporting director Monchi, according to reports in Italy.

The Spaniard is considered one of the best in the world in his role, having signed the likes of Ivan Rakitic and Dani Alves during his time at Sevilla.

The former goalkeeper is in his second full season with the Giallorossi, but has been criticised by fans for selling Alisson, Radja Nainggolan and Kevin Strootman.

According to this morning’s Gazzetta dello Sport, Manchester United, Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain and Atletico Madrid are all interested in signing Monchi.

There is a double clause in his contract, the newspaper claims, which allows either a one-year extension to his current four-year deal, or for him to move for an agreed fee.
