Problems for Manolas to Zenit

Gianluca Di Marzio has reported that Zenit and Roberto Mancini are irked and annoyed by the behavior of Kostas Manolas, who did not attend his scheduled medical visit for the Russian club.

The afternoon meeting that was scheduled between Manolas’ entourage and Zenit did also not go positively and the negotiations are now “blocked”. The player seemed to be all set but now we must wait 24 hours see if negotiations can restart.
