Manchester United transfer news: United ready to pay £108m for defender, Red Devils want £34m center-back, and more - 2nd January 2019
#2 Manchester United want Kostas Manolas
Manchester United have been chasing a bunch of defenders to shore up their defence for the remainder of the season. One of those defenders is AS Roma defender Kostas Manolas.
According to Tutto Mercato Web via Daily Mirror, Manchester United are rumored to be preparing a £34m deal to bring the Greek defender to Old Trafford.
Manolas is one of the most reliable defenders in the Serie A and has also been pursued by Premier League clubs Chelsea and Arsenal.
The Red Devils have been linked with moves for the likes of Toby Alderweireld, Harry Maguire, and Kalidou Koulibaly, but Manolas' release clause makes him a more affordable target in comparison to their other targets.
It remains to be seen if the Red Devils do make a concrete offer for the Greek defender and sign him this month.Published 02 Jan 2019, 20:45 IST
