Manolas no show for medical tests
According to the latest reports out of Italy, Kostas Manolas did not appear for his medical tests this morning after a disagreement with Zenit.
All scenarios remain open regarding Kostas Manolas’ move to Zenit after recent developments on Wednesday. According to the Italian media, Manolas has requested his salary be paid in Euros while Zenit are offering his wage in Russian ruble. Due to this disagreement, the Greek defender did not show up for his medical tests this morning and Manolas will sit down with Zenit later today to discuss the situation.
However, another report states that this could all be an intentional delay as Chelsea have made a last minute effort to sign the Greece international. The Premier League club are looking to take full advantage of these recent developments and possibly bring the 26-year old to London.
A reminder, Manolas has agreed with Zenit to a 4-year contract with annual earnings of €4 million while the Russian club and Roma have agreed to €35 million for Manolas’ transfer.
