Manchester United defender Chris Smalling could be ending his nine-year relationship with the club in January as Roma are reportedly set to sign him on a permanent deal.

The England international joined the Serie A side on loan in the summer after falling down the pecking order at Old Trafford following the acquisition of Harry Maguire from Leicester City.

He has hit the ground running at Roma and the Serie A side are looking at the possibility of capturing him on a permanent deal during the next transfer market.

Corriere Dello Sport (via Sport Witness) said that Roma have revealed their willingness to have the defender beyond this season and they are ready to meet United’s asking price.

The Italy-based media publication claimed that Roma sporting directors Franco Baldini and Gianluca Petrachi have been to Manchester to let the Glazers know of their interest in Smalling.

Will United let go of one of their highly experienced and longest-serving defenders in January? Only time will tell, but as it stands, Solskjaer won’t stop his employers from selling the player if Roma is willing to spend big on his signature.

Chris Smalling joined United from Fulham in 2010 and has won some trophies with the club, including FA Cup and Europa League glory.
