Smalling takes pay cut for Roma?

Chris Smalling is eager to make his stay at Roma permanent and even take a pay cut, claim Italian reports, despite Manchester United and Arsenal interest.

The centre-back has rediscovered his form at the Olimpico, but the loan period is due to expire in June.

The Giallorossi made it clear from the start they wanted to purchase outright, paying €3m just for the one-season loan.

According to Sky Sport Italia, Smalling has told Roma that he is prepared to take a pay cut in order to push the move through.

Manchester United still own the England international and reportedly want €35m for the 30-year-old, while Arsenal are also keeping close tabs on the situation.
