Manchester United have maintained their stance on Chris Smalling according to the report from popular British media outlet Daily Mirror.

Chris Smalling signed for AS Roma on loan last summer after the signing of Harry Maguire from fellow Premier League club Leicester City.

Harry Maguire signed for Manchester United in an £80m deal to make him the most expensive defender ever and his transfer led to the exit of Chris Smalling from Manchester United on a season-long loan deal to AS Roma.

Chris Smalling has been one of the best central defenders in the Italian Serie A this season and the form of the 30-year-old has propelled his new club to the top four.

AS Roma are on course to return to the Champions League next season.

Chris Smalling has convinced AS Roma officials to pursue a move for him permanently.

AS Roma offered £13m plus £3.5m in add-ons for the Manchester United loanee but the Red Devils are holding out for £25m as per the aforementioned publication.

Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand questioned the exit of Chris Smalling from the club last year as he described him as the most natural defender at Old Trafford.
