Chelsea have once again been linked with a potential replacement for John Terry, this time in the shape of Roma’s Kostas Manolas.
Chelsea’s terrible run of defending this season has emphasised the fact that Terry is nearing the end of his career and that the club needs to look for a long term replacement.
A drawn out and fruitless pursuit of Everton’s John Stones was followed by a last minute attempt to sign PSG’s Marquinhos, which also failed. The club are believed to still be interested in both but have broadened their search for a new centre-back.
The 24-year-old Greek Manolas is just one of several they are considering.
