Kostas Manolas wanted by Man City, Man United and Chelsea - agent

Manchester City, Manchester United and Chelsea are all interested in Roma defender Kosta Manolas, the player's agent has said.

Manolas, 25, has been linked with a move to City this summer as Pep Guardiola looks to add to his defensive options.

Speaking to Italian newspaper Il Tempo, Ioannis Evangelopoulos refused to comment on whether the Greece international would stay in Serie A, but confirmed Manolas is in demand.

"The best clubs in Europe want him," he said. "There isn't just Manchester City, but also United and Chelsea.

"I haven't spoken with Roma for a while. Will he remain in the capital? No comment."

Roma president James Pallotta, though, told Sky Sport Italia that he expects Manolas to stay.

"Why will Manolas not stay? He has a contract," he said. "Does he want more money? He is happy here."
