Kostas Manolas has been long term target of Ole Gunnar Solskjær as the manager look to bolster his defensive options for the next season.

Kostas Manolas is a traditional defender. He is solid while defending and holds his position perfectly.

According to Teamtalk, “Kostas Manolas has told Manchester United he is willing to sign for the club this summer following talks between his agent and the Premier League giants. The Roma defender has carved out a reputation for himself as one of Serie A’s best defenders and Calciomercato claims United are closing in on his signing, with his exit deal still containing a bargain €35m release clause. According to the paper, United interim manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has made the capture of Manolas one of his top targets this summer – with the entire fee likely to be offset by the same of Eric Bailly, who has fallen a long way down United’s pecking order.”

Roma are not in a position where they need to sell and would like to keep hold of the defender, but right offer may force the club to consider a deal.

Undoubtedly he would be a fantastic recruit for Manchester United.
