AS Roma To Make Another Bid For Chris Smalling

Italian Serie A capital club AS Roma are poised to make another bid for Manchester United defender Chris Smalling according to the latest reports emanating from the media in the United Kingdom.

The specific report from The Guardian claimed that Roma want to make another bid for the 31-year-old centre back and this is coming on the back of the admission from Red Devils boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer that the club has not received any suitable offer for the player mentioned above.

Solskjaer was asked about Chris Smalling during his post-match press conference after the Carabao Cup third round win at Luton Town on Tuesday night.

He oversaw a 3-0 away win to ensure that Manchester United are in the pot for the fourth round draws.

Juan Manuel Mata gave Manchester United the lead on the stroke of halftime from the penalty spot before substitutes Mason Greenwood and Marcus Rashford added further goals towards the end of the game.

Earlier reports claimed that Roma made a €15m offer to sign Chris Smalling permanently but the Red Devils are holding out for €20m to sanction the transfer.

Roma manager Pablo Fonseca is keen to sign Smalling for keeps after his successful loan spell last season.
