‘Barca & Madrid interest in Manolas’

Kostas Manolas’ agent claims Barcelona and Real Madrid are both among the clubs interested in the Roma defender.

Mundo Deportivo reports links between Barca and Manolas are “not new” as the Blaugrana “reserved an option to buy” the Greece international as part of Thomas Vermaelen’s loan to Roma last summer.

“Inter can be an interesting option, but in the same way as Barcelona, Real Madrid and Juventus. Many teams have spoken [to me about him],” Ioannis Evangelopoulos told Tuttomercatoweb.

Manolas, 26, has spent the last three years at the Olimpico but was recently the subject of a failed transfer to Zenit St Petersburg for a fee reportedly in the region of €40m.
