Chris Smalling Roma

Manchester United ready to sell Smalling

Manchester United are reportedly ready to hear the offers of Roma for the possible sell of Chris Smalling.

Roma are keen to make Smalling's stay in Italy permanent as the Englishman has shown that he is enjoying his time with the club.

Smalling had an impressive season during his time with Roma and even got several calls for him to return to Old Trafford.

However, United seem to be ready to say goodbye to the defender as they are overstocked in that position with the likes of Phil Jones, Harry Maguire, Axel Tuanzebe, Victor Lindelof and Eric Bailly while Marcos Rojo is currnetly on loan too.

Smalling is unlikely to be the preferred option for a regular starter as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer most certainly will choose the trusted options.

Considering the fact that the 30-year-old defender has told that he loves playing for Roma, the idea of making his stay at Stadio Olimpico does not seem so bad.

According to Corriere dello Sport via Sport Witness, Roma could complete another season’s worth of a loan for Smalling that will cost €3m meaning that they will be obliged to sign him for permanent in 2021.

The transfer fee that the Red Devils might demand could be between €12-15m, but the Serie A team is convinced in Smalling qualities.

This figures are far from the initial €30m Manchester United were said to want for Smalling, but the coronavirus crisis cause a drop down in the players' prices.
