Manchester United have reportedly accepted Chris Smalling’s desire to remain at Roma and lowered the asking price to €18m.
Multiple sources have stated that the England international is happy in Serie A and wishes to make the loan spell permanent.
Roma considered the €25m price-tag to be excessive for the 30-year-old, whose contract with Manchester United runs to June 2022.
According to Il Tempo newspaper, the Old Trafford side is now prepared to lower the asking price to €18-20m.
This would give the Giallorossi a much better chance of signing Smalling to a long-term deal.
He has made 28 competitive appearances for Roma this season, scoring two goals and providing one assist.
