She explained that the English club is willing to pay the value of penalty clause in the contract, “Manolas,” which is estimated at 31.5 million pounds.
She explained that the administration of Roma is trying to reach an agreement with “Manolas” to cancel the penalty clause in his contract or raise it to 43.7 million pounds.
Even if Roma succeeds in increasing the value of the penalty clause, Manchester United will stick to the idea of including Manolas as the most suitable defender for the team.
The 27-year-old player’s current contract expires in 2022.
