Salernitana are set to announce the signing of Greek international centre-back Kostas Manolas as a free-agent. The winter transfer window may have officially closed on February 1st, but clubs continue to scour the market for free agents who could bolster their squads. Among the late acquisitions is Salernitana’s signing of 32-year-old Manolas, a former stalwart for Roma and Napoli. The club, now under the stewardship of manager Filippo Inzaghi, sees Manolas as a vital addition to enhance their defensive capabilities.
Having touched down in the heart of Campania, Manolas is poised to put pen to paper and finalize his contract with the Granata. For the experienced center-back, this marks a return to familiar terrain within the Italian football landscape, having previously donned the jerseys of both the Giallorossi and the Partenopei.
Manolas, who recently became a free agent following his departure from Sharjah, is expected to reach an agreement with Salernitana for a six-month contract with an option to extend. Speaking about his return to Serie A, the Greek international conveyed his excitement and commitment to his new club with a succinct message: “Molto contento di essere tornato. Forza Salernitana!” (Very happy to be back. Forza Salernitana!)
