Daniel Mancini – Panathinaikos: The key person for… – Sportdog.gr – Sports News | News

The Alafouzou-“Kary” contact, the cost of the deal and the difference with Limani! Evangelos Michos reveals all the background behind the great transfer of the Argentine to Trefoil. Why the series started 3.5 months ago, the player’s insistence not to wear the red and whites if his terms are not met, the sham proposal to avoid the… pressure, the money he and Aris will get, but also how it happened the No. 2 who rejects Piraeus and spoils a… sure transfer.

The “Mantsiniada” a transfer series that lasted about 3.5 months, with constant upheavals and the involvement of more than half a dozen teams, seems to have had the most unpredictable ending.

To be precise, he ends up in the team that the player and his agent wanted from the beginning and that completely satisfied Daniel Mancini’s wishes, i.e. Jovanovic’s Panathinaikos.

For this to happen, it was necessary to break the Alafouzou-Karipidis ice, to follow a specific strategy and above all for Olympiacos to be out of the fight as happened years ago with the Bakaseta case (which ended up in AEK and while the “red and whites” had found out with Panionios)

The column, therefore, unravels the whole entanglement of this much-lauded story, which anyway from the beginning to the end fell in and was completely confirmed

1. Jovanovic wanted Mancini and Mancini Panathinaikos since the fall almost immediately after Aitor’s injury! When the Argentine had arrived one step before the appeal against Aris because he had him unpaid and the…informed “greens” were waiting for his move to take him as a free agent. However, it was spoiled for them by Karipidis, who when he took it in stride not only paid him but also gave him the next installment. Everything then…

2. The column had then revealed that behind Mancini… Panathinaikos was hiding (although later the “clover” denied it) and… no AEK. In fact, we had exclusively given the extension of that development, after the payment of Mancini by Karipidis, that his most likely destination in January would now be Olympiacos (who also wanted him in the summer but finally took Abu Kamara from Aris). And this was confirmed by the reports that followed…

3. It was December 17 when the column was “reprinted” with a new exclusivity on the Mancini series, against the majority of the media that presented him “closed” by Olympiakos. Under the title… “upheaval with Mancini, he does not close at Olympiakos – The player’s decision, he remains loyal to his agents, he does not go to the port, Aris sells him” we explained in detail why the ace – who at the time already had two other offers from abroad, better finances – he refuses the “red and whites” as soon as they don’t satisfy him financially…

4. It was December 22 when the Olympiacos report, on radios and websites, wanted Mancini to come down to Piraeus immediately to sign for Olympiacos, making it his 2nd transfer after Rodney. Again the column… warned: “there is a financial difference between Mancini and Olympiakos and Karipidis cannot overindulge his two agents and send him to the “red and whites” as he had told them…”. With the revelation, then, of who was the Russian team that “against” the Champions of Greece. That is, Krilia Samara who was paying over 1.5 million transfers fee on Mars and 800,000 yearly to Mancini. Today’s highlight/footnote: basically that Krilia proposal was “pretend” to not go to Olympiakos and was a trick of the ace side!!

5. Two days later, on Christmas Day, the column goes all out…against reports that wanted Mancini to spend New Year’s at Rentis. “Mancini did not “chew” to sign for Olympiakos. He would go on his own terms and not only with those of Karipides and Olympiakos since he DOESN’T OPERATE…” was the column’s new exclusive, surely mocking the leaks from Piraeus that AEK was behind Mancini’s “refusal”. Then we made it clear that it would only go to the “red and whites” if: “the player stops listening to his managers and agrees to the existing Karipides-Olympiakou agreement or the “red and whites” raise their offer to the player”. Neither happened of course, of course. Another confirmation of the column…

6. The sequel is more or less known… Mancini returned to Aris’ training and matches, his agents Konstantinos Diamantopoulos and Di Bartolo brought proposals to Aris, they also brought Al Wahda (its CEO and sports director) to Thessaloniki for negotiation (they also saw the derby with PAOK, as the column revealed again). THE proposal of the club from Dubai was 1,000,000 for a 6-month loan fee and another 1,000,000 euros in the summer if Mancini’s purchase option was activated by the team coached by Manolo Jimenez. Mars but he rejected her…

7. And we arrive at January 14, when, on the occasion of the reports in Spain and Greece that Aris returned for the Spanish winger Aitor García, the column “booms” another exclusive: “the sale of Mancini by Aris has been unblocked, the deal has to reach 90% to be completed, he leaves “in the next 10 days”!!! To explode today, January 24, exactly 10 days after our revelation, the bombshell that Mancini is being sold to Panathinaikos!!!!!

8. Some in the Greek market agents claim that the Swedish top scorer Yeremejev (who went on loan to Levadeiakos) was Mancini’s preliminary. In the sense that in both cases the same agent, Konstantinos Diamantopoulos, is involved…

9. It is true that Panathinaikos in the “Mantsiniada” had 100% the player’s side with him, something that Olympiacos did not have throughout its duration until it withdrew from the case. Mancini was together from the beginning – he was one, with his agent, Konstantinos Diamantopoulos. After all, the latter, as the technical director of ¨Aris, had taken him/went to “Vikelidis”…

10. Diamantopoulos, who has also been with Panathinaikos Alafouzou as sports/technical director (under Ouzounidis), really had a catalytic contribution to the “greens” first finding Mancini. From the moment the league leaders fully satisfied Mancini financially (they offered him an annual salary close to 750,000 when Olympiacos did not give him more than 500,000 and in Aris it reached 350,000) and the player spoke/was covered by Jovanovic, it was after the matter … Alafouzou to satisfy the demands of Aris and above all to break the ice in his relationship with Karypides.

11. The two defeats by PAOK and the need to transfer yesterday a player who will play as a starter without needing adjustment time and compatible with Jovanovic’s style, brought stormy developments with Mancini in the last 36 hours. Bad lies, the Argentinian with the Italian passport, who objectively is a good player who plays all over the Big 4, was the best possible transfer in the position of winger for the “clover”, at the given timing.

12. O Panathinaikos had found it in everything with Mancini and them agents before making his offer to Mars. The last information wanted this to reach 2,200,000 euros and the only disagreement was the 20% resale percentage of Bordeaux. We’re talking roughly 440,000, about who would pay for it. With Mancini, however, pushing to give Panathinaikos and Olympiakos “out of contention”, the deal done it’s only a matter of time…

13. Never say never… Finally Alafouzos can pay a large transfer fee to Karypides and Karypides can talk about a deal with Panathinaikos. Detail: at Aris, Toumasatos, formerly of Alafouzou at Panathinaikos, is the financial director at Aris, when … Diamantopoulos was also there.

14. If the transfer of Mancini to Panathinaikos finally takes place, it will be the second time that his agent Constantinos Diamantopoulos will have spoiled a “job” for Olympiakos. The first was with Tassos Bakaseta, when the “red and whites” had agreed with Panionios but the international striker with the catalytic influence of Diamantopoulos agreed with Melissanidis’ AEK and despite the pressures he received, he remained loyal and finally ended up in the Union!
