Roma back in for Manolas

According to Sky Italia journalist Gianluca Di Marzio, Roma are back in for Kostas Manolas of Olympiakos.

Reportedly while in London this week, Roma’s Mauro Baldissoni and Walter Sabatini met with Mino Raiola, Manolas’ agent, to discuss the possibility of bringing the Greek to Rome. Manolas and Spurs defender Vlad Chiriches appear to be the front runners if Mehdi Benatia is sold. The possibility of bringing in both Chririches and Manolas is also an option, which could open the door to the loan of Alessio Romagnoli to Sampdoria.
