Roma defender Kostas Manolas, who has been linked with Chelsea, Juventus and Inter Milan this summer, confirms that he will be staying at the club.

Roma defender Kostas Manolas has confirmed that he is "definitely" staying at the club this summer following the breakdown of his proposed switch to Zenit St Petersburg.

The 26-year-old had been due to undergo a medical with the Russian outfit earlier this summer, but a disagreement over his wages at the 11th hour ultimately saw the deal break down.

Manolas has also been linked with Chelsea, Juventus and Inter Milan this summer, but he has now insisted that he will stay at the Stadio Olimpico.

"I'll say here, definitely. I can't say anything about my contract, I don't know what will happen. But I'll stay," the Greek international told Corriere dello Sport.

It is understood that Manolas wanted Zenit to pay his contract in euros in order to safeguard against any potential collapse of the ruble, but the club refused to grant his request.
