Juventus have held talks with Chelsea and Manchester United target Kostas Manolas as they try to tie up a deal for the Roma defender.

The Italian champions are currently on the hunt for a new centre-back after selling Leonardo Bonucci to AC Milan.

Juve have reportedly now set their sights on Manloas, who has previously been linked with a move to Chelsea and Manchester United.

Indeed, according to La Reppublica, Juventus general manager Beppe Marotta met with Roma sporting director Monchi over the weekend to try broker a deal.

Roma are said to want close to £35m for Manolas, who has already snubbed the chance to join Zenit St Petersburg this summer.

The Russian club had agreed a fee for the Greece international, but he rejected the chance to join them after talks over personal terms collapsed.
