Man United want €18m for Smalling

Manchester United are demanding €18m from Roma to make defender Chris Smalling's loan permanent, according to Tuttosport.

Smalling made the switch to the Eternal City in the summer, and has been one of the best defenders in Serie A this season.

The Turin daily reports that United are requesting €18m to sign the centre back outright at the end of the campaign.

However, Roma DS Gianluca Petrachi is working to bring the price tag down.

Smalling is said to be more than open to the idea of remaining at Roma on a permanent basis.

Petrachi: 'Absurd disallowed goal!'

Roma director of sport Gianluca Petrachi was furious with the referee after a last-gasp goal against Cagliari was disallowed. “It’s absurd! In England, they’ll laugh at us.”

The game ended 1-1, but in stoppages Nikola Kalinic bundled the ball over the line after he had pushed Fabio Pisacane into goalkeeper Robin Olsen.

The referee disallowed the goal on the spot, but Roma didn’t realise this until after Pisacane had been stretchered off with a neck-brace.

Petrachi: Roma no feeder club!

Gianluca Petrachi believes Roma’s work in the transfer market over the summer proves they are not ‘a feeder club for anyone’.

Kostas Manolas and Stephan El Shaarawy were the only starters to leave Roma as they managed to convince Edin Dzeko into not only knocking back interest from Inter but also signing a new contract.

“Mkhitaryan preferred Roma over a few more million, knowing he was choosing a club who best suited his sporting needs,” Petrachi said at Henrikh Mkhitaryan’s official unveiling.
