Report: Roma want Smalling on permanent deal for €15M

Roma will reportedly make a €15-million offer to Manchester United to sign Chris Smalling on a permanent deal.

The 29-year-old joined the Italian club on a season-long loan for a small €3-million fee, and according to the Guardian’s Fabrizio Romano, the defender has made a good enough impression in his first few months to warrant a bid.

Roma reportedly have a five-year contract waiting on the table for Smalling, who left United shortly after the arrival of Harry Maguire.

He’s earned a regular place in Paulo Fonseca’s starting lineup and scored his first goal for Roma in a blowout win over Udinese on Wednesday night. His recovery speed has made him a good fit for Fonseca’s high-octane system.

Smalling’s current contract with United runs until June 2022.
