Man United in three-way battle to sign top Serie A defender – report
Man United are facing competition from Bayern Munich and Juventus for Kostas Manolas' signature, according to a report in Italy
Manchester United will look to beat Bayern Munich and Juventus to the signing of Kostas Manolas this summer, according to a report in Italy.
Italian media outlet Corriere dello Sport, as quoted by Shoot.co.uk, is reporting that the Red Devils are interested in a deal to sign the AS Roma defender.
The same article states that the 20-time English champions are ready to make a £31.5m offer for the Greece international in an attempt to bolster their defence.
According to the same story, Manolas won’t decide on a potential move to Manchester United until Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side secure a top-four finish and Champions League football.
Corriere dello Sport go on to add that Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich and Serie A holders Juventus are also interested in the Greek centre-half.
Manchester United hoisted themselves into fourth spot courtesy of a 3-0 win over Fulham at Craven Cottage last time out.
Arsenal and Chelsea FC are a point adrift of Manchester United in what promises to be a compelling conclusion to the top-four race.
The Gunners signed Manolas’ Greece team-mate Sokratis Papastathopoulos from Borussia Dortmund last summer.
Sokratis has struggled to adapt to the pace of the Premier League this term with some uncertain performances for Unai Emery’s side.
