Juventus set to sign Roma defender Kostas Manolas

Juventus are set to sign Roma defender Kostas Manolas, according to the football transfer rumours in Italian Media (Tutto Mercato Web).

The Greece international has joined Roma from Olympiacos for a fee in the region of 13 million euros in August 2014. The 26-year-old has a valid contract with Roma until June 2019.

Kostas Manolas has played 131 times for Roma since signing from Olympiacos, scoring two goals and creating five assists in that time.

The Greece international has been in impressive form for Roma this season.

Kostas Manolas has represented Greece at Under-21 level, winning five caps, before making his senior international debut in February 2013. As a member of Greece national football team, Manolas has won 29 caps.

Adding a defender remains Juventus’s top priority this summer and Massimiliano Allegri will have drafted a shortlist of a number of possible targets he could approach in the coming days.

Massimiliano Allegri is a long term admirer of Kostas Manolas and believes he can get the most out of the Greece international.

Juventus are in the market for just a handful of statement signings this summer who can improve the first-team.

The Greece international will definitely be a good addition to the Juventus side, which will be competing in the Champions League next season.

According to the report in Italian Media, Greece international has already agreed to join the Italian champions, but the clubs have yet to decide a fee. Roma are preparing to sell their defender should they receive a massive offer in the region of 40 million euros for him.

Chelsea are apparently trailing Juventus in the pursuit of Roma defender Kostas Manolas.

How strong that interest is and whether Juventus will make a summer move remains to be seen but it is certainly one worth keeping an eye on.

Manolas would reportedly be interested in a move this summer, but if Juventus do want him, they will have to beat those other interested clubs to his signature.
