Kostas Manolas


#1

Would be a great signing


#2

Roma will not sell Manolas this year because the 50% of the fee will be for Olympiakos. Next year not, Manolas knows it and has accepted to remain with giallorossi another year.


#3

Yeah, I dunno why journalists keep pushing Manolas rumours. You either got to spend a ridiculous fee or Roma roll over and receive an amount of money not even close to his market value.


#4

No chance we’ll get this guy. Just too expensive.


#5

We should have got him two years ago. I fear it’s too late now.


#6

As they are out from the Champions League, Roma need to sell their best players. We seem to be after him again. One of our scout was in Roma yesterday.


#7

He’d be the ideal addition but it seems very unlikely given the sell-on clause between Olympiakos and Roma.

You’d basically need to cut a three way deal in which Olympiakos agreed to a lower cut of the fee. They might do it if the alternative is waiting past September 1 and then getting no more than 6.5M in a future fee. But the more complicated these things get, the less likely they are to happen.
