Manchester United are understood to have made enquiries on the availability of Roma defender Kostas Manolas this summer. The Greek international is also a transfer target for league rivals Chelsea.

The 24-year-old has been long linked with a move to the Premier League with the Blues being his main suitors.

According to The Mail, United's hierarchy have made contact with the Giallorossi regarding a potential move for the talented centre-back.

The report adds that club executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward will wait on the appointment of Jose Mourinho before lodging a summer bid for the highly-rated defender.

In addition to Manolas, Arsenal ace Laurent Koscielny and Leicester City star N'Golo Kante are among the leading names on Mourinho's shortlist.
