Report: Nottingham Forest to demand £2.5m for Michael Mancienne

Forest City Ground

Fulham are reportedly interested in signing Michael Mancienne from Nottingham Forest.

Nottingham Forest will demand £2.5 million as transfer fee for defender Michael Mancienne, according to The Nottingham Post.

It has been reported by the British newspaper that Forest’s Championship rivals Fulham have made a bid of £2m for the centre-back.

According to The Nottingham Post, Forest will take their time to consider the offer and have not made a decision on Mancienne’s future.

The Reds are also claimed to be keen on demanding a percentage of any future sale of the 27-year-old, who can also play as a defensive midfielder, if they do decide to sell.

The report claims that Forest manager Dougie Freedman will hold talks with the former Chelsea player over his long-term plans this weekend.

Should Nottingham Forest sell Michael Mancienne?

Mancienne has been on the books of Forest since the summer of 2014, when he joined them after leaving German club Hamburg.

The defender is an important part of the team, and Forest should try to keep hold of him for the 2015-16 campaign.

The former Chelsea centre-back created eight chances in 36 Championship matches last season.

Mancienne had a pass accuracy of 78% and a shot accuracy of 57%, and won 116 headers, 10 dribbles and 51 tackles.
