Manchester United seem to have changed their mind over Chris Smalling’s future at Old Trafford as reports revealed that the player’s price tag has now been set.
Roma are willing to sign the defender on a permanent basis following his fine start to his Serie A career and they have met with United to discuss.
But the Sun revealed, during the week, that the Red Devils are not ready to let go of the England international in the next summer window after turning down Roma’s proposal.

However, latest reports via the Daily Mail suggests that the Red Devils seem to have changed their mind about Smalling’s future at Old Trafford as they are now ready to negotiate with any suitor who is willing to offer nothing less than £17m.
The British media claimed that the Premier League giants will likely welcome offers for the highly experienced defender in the summer transfer window.
As it stands, Roma will most likely be the player’s next destination judging by his seamless integration into the team this season and the club’s urge to keep him permanently.
Smalling scored his first goal for Roma during the week, helping the ten record a convincing 4-0 victory over struggling Udinese.
