Official: Mancosu signs three-year deal with Lecce

Lecce have officially signed a new three-year deal with attacking midfielder Marco Mancosu.

The Sardinian scored 14 goals in Serie A this term but couldn’t prevent the Giallorossi from relegating to Serie B.

Mancosu has renewed for three years and has implemented a release clause in his new contract at the Via del Mare.

Any possible suitors must therefore trigger the €3m release clause in his new three-year deal, but the 31-year-old seems set to help Lecce in their pursuit of a swift return to Serie A.
