Manchester United have held talks with AS Roma defender Kostas Manolas about a potential summer transfer to Old Trafford, according to reports in Italy.

The Red Devils are expected to be one of the busiest clubs in the summer transfer window as they prepare for their first season under Jose Mourinho.

United opted to sack Louis van Gaal on Monday after the club’s fifth-placed finish in the Premier League and attentions have now inevitably turned towards the summer transfer window and the club’s plans to recruit new players.

The 24-year-old defender has been heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford – and now Gianluca Di Marzio is reporting that United official held talks with Manolas’ representatives with a view to a summer move.

The same report goes on to say that United are willing to part with £30m to lure the defender to Old Trafford this summer.
