Roma defender refutes United talk


Roma defender Kostas Manolas says he is unaware of any interest from Manchester United.


United have emerged as admirers of the Greece international in the last few days and Chelsea are also believed to be interested in the central defender.


However, the 24-year-old insists he has heard nothing of United’s interest and is only focused on honouring the remaining three years of his Roma contract.


“Manchester United? I know nothing, my agent tells me nothing” Manolas told Sky Sports.


“I have to be focused on Roma, I still have three years on my contract. After the end of the season we will look at things together with Roma.”

Manolas has been an ever present in the Roma starting XI since being signed from Olympiacos in 2014. He has featured in all but one league game this season and only Edin Dzeko (97) has won more aerial duels than Manolas (92) of Roma players in Serie A so far this season.
