Chris Smalling

There have been reports that Roma are in talks with United over their chances of signing Chris Smalling on a permanent deal after his fine start to his loan spell at the club.

The England international joined the Serie A side on a loan deal prior to the start of the campaign and he has been doing fine for the team.

Unfortunately, Roma’s mission seems impossible as Sky Sports claimed that the Red Devils have turned down their bid because Solskjaer is keen on having the defender by the end of the season.

The highly regarded media outlet claimed that Solskjaer will happily welcome the centre-back back to his team at the end of the season, should he maintain his fine form through to the end of the campaign.

Chris Smalling’s experience could be one of the reasons why Solskjaer is willing to reunite with the player considering the fact that he is one of the longest-serving players at Old Trafford.

Nonetheless, the decision to retain the tall defender seems unnecessary considering the large pool of players available for selection.

Harry Maguire, Victor Lindelof, Axel Tuanzebe, Marco Rojo, Eric Bailly – if fully fit – and Phil Jones are very much available, hence, retaining the Englishman isn’t needed.
