Zenit trying for Paredes, Manolas swoop


Il Tempo has reported today that after the meeting between Roma and Zenit in Germany, the Russian has offered about €65 million euros for the “package” of Manolas and Paredes.

Roma rejected €30 million for Manolas, but are now intrigued by this offer for both players and are open to accepting it. While Manolas has already reached an agreement with Zenit for €4 million net plus bonuses, now the club is awaiting the “OK” of Paredes. On Monday, his agentc Pablo Sabbag, is expected in Italy and could also bring forth offer from both Juventus and Borussia Dortmund. But at the moment, the deal is very intriguing for Roma and has the chance to raise to potentially €70 million, a startling figure that makes Monchi contemplate.
