AS Roma defensive rock Kostas Manolas, is a constant subject of transfer rumour these days, thanks to his incredible €36 million release clause.
English giants Manchester United are the latest club to be linked with the Greek, yet former Premier League champions Chelsea have been eyeing the centre-back for some time too.
As per media outlet Leggo, both Chelsea and Manchester United have made the defender a bid ahead of next season, knowing pretty well they do not have to discuss with his current side for the transfer fee.
However, with speculations that Italian tactician Antonio Conte could replace Claudio Ranieri at AS Roma, the central defender has asked his agent, Mino Raiola, to hang onto the proposals and wait until the season ends.
Should the ex-Italy, Chelsea and Juventus head coach take over at Roma, then there’s possibility the European defender could renew his deal at the Serie A side, thus bagging a slightly improved wage and given his side an opportunity to remove the release clause also.
For the West London club and the Red Devils, there is not much remaining to do but hang on and see if Antonio Conte ruins their transfer plan.
Meanwhile, TEAMtalk is reporting, Wolverhampton are set to submit a bid for Lindelof in their effort to reinforce their squad in the summer window.
The Red devils star has been at Old Trafford two years, but the English club may be willing to listen to offer for the 24-year-old Sweden international who has since failed to live up to expectation and his £31 million valuation.
