Today’s edition of Il Corriere della Sera claims that Roma are set to offer Kostas Manolas a new contract.
The Greek defender, who moved to Roma in 2014, has been arguably the Giallorossi’s most important player over the last two seasons and has drawn interest from all over Europe. However, Roma are reportedly ready to significantly raise Manolas’ annual wages, which sit at roughly €1.5 million (net) per season.
Meanwhile, agent Mino Raiola, who Manolas hit out at for making comments on his future after stating Raiola wasn’t his agent, spoke to La Gazzetta dello Sport today to clarify himself;
“He’s right, I am not his agent and I never meant to represent this. As someone unattached, I simply wanted to state my admiration for him because I consider him to be a great defender. I’m sorry he misunderstood me. Anyway, if he is well at Roma and he wants to remain then I hope he fulfills his ambitions and remains in the capital.”
