Kostas Manolas

Premier League champions Chelsea have suffered a major transfer blow after it was officially revealed on Saturday that their reported transfer target Kostas Manolas has signed a new deal with Serie A side AS Roma.

Manolas, 26, has sealed himself as a key member for the side since joining from Olympiacos back in 2014, playing 143 matches for the Italian Serie A side as he has been a prominent figure in keeping the side in the top three.

However, as reported by The Sun, the West London giants had held an interest in signing him, while it was also claimed that City rivals Arsenal were also previously keen also.

It’s claimed in that report that Kostas Manolas could have a £32.5m buyout clause included in his latest contract, but no such buyout clause has been talked about as AS Roma made the contract renewal news official on Saturday afternoon via twitter.

The Greek has committed himself to the Capital City club until 2022, and so it will surely make things tough for any suitor to prise the player away now.

Having brought in Rudiger from Roma last summer, it looks to make no sense for the blues to pay heavily for him, although with Brazil international defender David Luiz and club captain Gary Cahill clocking 30, perhaps the club need longer-term replacements and Kostas Manolas would fit into Conte’s requirement.

Jose Mourinho

You can’t make a list of top five managers in the world without including former Manchester United manager José Mourinho and Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola due to their impressive managerial records.

Both managers came up against each other during their days in the Spanish La Liga before they later crossed paths in the English Premier League.

Picking the best manager from these two tacticians has always been a problem for many pundits, just as it is difficult to decide who is the best player between Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.

Loading...

However, Former Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibramovich has revealed the reason why he will always pick the Portuguese over his Spanish counterpart.

The striker — who worked with the two managers — told reporters that Mourinho knows how to control the players under his watch and the manager remains a special one and a winner.

He said the former Chelsea manager seamlessly creates a peaceful atmosphere for his players and he had a positive impact on his successful career, unlike Guardiola who treated him (Ibramovich) badly during their time at Camp Nou.

“He had an incredible impact on my career, He is still ‘the Special One’, a winner. I hope he will be back on a bench soon and I am sure he will start winning immediately.” he said.

Speaking of Guardiola, Ibramovich said: “We never had a direct confrontation because of him. When we faced each other, he hid.

“He [Guardiola] waited for me to leave and then left the dressing room. As a coach, he is a phenomenon, but as a man…” he concluded.
