Roma renegotiate Manolas clause

Roma are in talks with Kostas Manolas to either remove the €36m release clause or increase it to €50m amid Manchester United and Juventus interest.

According to the Corriere dello Sport, the negotiations over a new contract for the defender are progressing well.

The main issue is the release clause, which currently stands at a surprisingly low figure of €36m.

Director of sport Monchi is trying to either remove the clause entirely from the new deal, or at least increase it to a more suitable €50m.

Manolas is currently tied to the Giallorossi until June 2022 and the 27-year-old has attracted interest from numerous clubs, including Juve, Manchester United and Arsenal.

The centre-back was purchased from Olympiacos for €13m in the summer of 2014.
