Report: Manolas renewal next month

Kostas Manolas will reportedly extend his Roma contract after the international break, with a €30m release clause.

The Greek defender was close to leaving the Giallorossi this summer to join Zenit St Petersburg, with a medical scheduled at Villa Stuart.

However, a last-minute dispute over wages saw the deal collapse and the centre-back remained in the Eternal City.

It was soon reported that talks had been opened for a renewal, and this morning’s Corriere dello Sport believes a new contract will be signed after the international break.

Manolas will commit his future to the club until 2022, with his wages rising to close to €3m.

Should the defender want a change of scenery, there will be a €30m release clause in the contract, though it’s not clear if that will only be for clubs outside of Italy.
