United in for Manolas?

Manchester United are reportedly in for Roma defender Kostas Manolas, who has a €36m release clause.

According to Gazzetta dello Sport’s Nicolo Schira, United are ‘insisting’ on a deal to sign Manolas.

Their cause has also been helped by the Greece international recently hiring Mino Raiola as his agent.

Four of Raiola’s clients moved to Old Trafford between 2016 and 2017, although Paul Pogba is the only one still at the club.

Central defence is a priority position for the Red Devils to bolster this summer, while Roma may be forced to sell Manolas if they fail to qualify for the Champions League.
