Man United are yet to come out straight on the future of Chris Smalling at the club but he has continued to be linked away with reports that two Italian Serie A outfits are keen on him.

AS Roma have been in the front row for the signature of the Man United defender after having a feel of him in the Serie A last season during his loan spell but are yet to wrap up a deal with the Red Devils.

Now it is reported that they have been joined by Inter Milan with Antonio Conte interested in the service of the 30-year-old on a loan deal with the Sun claiming that the Nerazzurri are willing to pay his £120,000 weekly wage if he agrees on a move.

However, Man United are yet to make any statement on the future of Chris Smalling at the club despite the speculations that he is not in the plans of manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for the new season.

The player is also reported to have fallen with life in Italy and is desperate to pull a deal through before the end of the summer transfer window as Man United will continue their search for a replacement.
