Report: Roma-Manolas agree to renewal

The finish line appears to have been reached for the renewal of Kostas Manolas.

As reported by Sky Sport, Roma and the entourage of the Greek have finally agreed to a new contract after the player’s potential move to Zenit broke down this summer. Form that moment on, talks about a contract renewal began. Manolas will receive a substantial wage increase and sign a three year renewal: he will sign a contract worth €3 million (net) plus bonuses. The sides will, reportedly, meet tomorrow to finalise the last detail surrounding the release clause, which likely be worth €35 million and only be valid for foreign clubs.
