Roma are reportedly struggling to find a viable solution to sign Chris Smalling from Manchester United, who don’t seem willing to negotiate on the price.
The Red Devils have been firm in their stance on the English centre-back, who has previously hinted he wants to stay in the Italian capital.
But the 30-year-old defender’s permanent move to the Olimpico seems to fade away, as Roma aren’t willing to meet the requested €20m.
The Giallorossi have, according to Calciomercato.com, tried to renew Smalling’s loan deal for both the summer and next season, with an expensive loan offer and an obligation to buy for €18m.
Manchester United and Roma are both preparing for the Europa League resumption next month and the report claims the Premier League side will not allow Roma to use their player in the competition.
