AC Milan Set To Rival Inter and Roma For United’s Want-away Defender


Manchester United are set to listen to offer from Roma over Chris Smalling’s services after their initial refusal to let go of the player on a permanent deal.

Smalling is in fine form for the Serie A side and the club are reportedly set to launch a permanent bid for his signature in the next transaction period.

It was earlier revealed that the Red Devils are unlikely to release him, but last week’s report via the Sun claimed that the Old Trafford outfits have placed a £17m price tag on his services.

Meanwhile, the latest report from the Daily Mail suggested that AC Milan and Inter Milan are keeping close tabs on the player’s situation as they are impressed with his performances so far this season.

The two San Siro outfits are said to be interested in the 29-year-old and they are more than willing to beat Roma in the race for his signature in the summer.

Though United are struggling for form at the back of the pitch, the decision to let go of the England international seems the best one as there is a need to offload some ineffective players in the team.

Marcos Rojo could equally be on his way out of the Theatre of Dreams before next season having failed to nail down a permanent spot in the team since the start of Solskjaer’s reign.
