Lazio Name Their Price for Manchester City Target

Lazio have reportedly set their price for their young goalkeeper and Manchester City target Christos Mandas who now finds himself at a career crossroads.

The 22-year-old made the move from Crete FC last summer and managed to exceed expectations in his first campaign in Italian football. The Greek had his big breakthrough when first-choice goalkeeper Ivan Provedel suffered an injury in March. Mandas made the most out of the opportunity, proving himself to be a reliable choice between the sticks.

However, Provedel returned from injury in the final weeks of the campaign to reclaim his starting berth. Therefore, Lazio could take the opportunity to pounce on Mandas’ recent exploits to register substantial capital gains on a player who only cost them €1.3 million last summer.

Lazio Want at Least €15 Million for Christos Mandas

According to Il Messaggero (via LazioNews24), the keeper is far from untouchable, as Lazio President Claudio Lotito would be willing to sell him for a figure between €15-€18 million including bonuses.

The source recalls that the Biancocelesti had rejected an opening bid from Manchester City who offered €2 million to acquire the Greek on loan with an obligation to buy set at €10 million. The Premier League champions are reportedly preparing a new and improved offer.

Mandas made nine Serie A appearances last term, recording five clean sheets in the process and conceding six goals. His contract with Lazio runs until June 2028.

  1. Sell him Lotito, this is how you make money on players, don’t wait forever like do did with Milinkovic-Savic until the price drops.

    Sell him and go get Samardzic.

    1. I would do that and use that money plus the €20mil we offered and we should get him without sell on clause or a minimal one of say 10% not the 50% that was attached to €20mil.

      There is a chance United will accept 25 mil + Mandas seeing that their rivals are going for him but this is hypothetical.

      Let’s see, but if we get both Greenwood AND Samardzici it would be a coup!

      Noslin and Dya can become background plans and since Baroni seems to like Pellegrini, we might be ok to give up Cabal and only go for 1 Hellas player in Noslin. Let’s see, however : Lotito must push all he has got !
