AS Roma and Manchester United have not come to an agreement over the transfer of Chris Smalling. Italian transfer expert Gianluca Di Marzio reports that the Romans have made an offer to keep the defender in the Serie A next season, but that the offer has been rejected by Man United.

Smalling has been impressing for Roma this season, becoming a regular starter under boss Daniel Fonseca. The Giallorossi would like to extend Smalling’s loan with another season, including an obligated option to buy in the summer of 2021. It is believed that Roma have offered โ‚ฌ3m to United to extend the loan and an additional โ‚ฌ15m to make the move permanent.

However, Manchester United want at least โ‚ฌ20m for the defender, which seems a unlikely high fee for a defender in his thirties. Smalling joined United in 2010 in an โ‚ฌ8m move from Fulham. Despite being a regular first team starter for the Red Devils over the year, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer decided to sent the defender out on loan. At Roma Smalling has made 32 appearances across all competitions this season.
