It is no longer a secrete that Chris Smalling is keen to leave Man United this summer transfer window as he is interested in a move to the Italian Serie A to continue his career.

Chris Smalling was in Italy on a season-long loan deal where he gave impressive performances although. He has since loved life in the country. A return to Man United for the new season is not an option for Chris Smalling.

Reports claim he has an agreement with AS Roma but there have been delay in announcing a deal as the Red Devils have had their demand on the fee.

Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has finally opened up on the reason why Chris Smalling is still at the club. According to him, AS Roma are yet to improve their bid from the last offer that was rejected.

He explained that he does not have the decision to make on Chris Smalling’s valuation but the club is yet to receive any sufficient bid for the experienced defender.

This means he might be forced to remain in England or move to other clubs if AS Roma fail o up their bid before the end of the summer transfer window.
