Smalling in the balance for Roma

Roma have seen another proposal for Chris Smalling rejected by Manchester United and are starting to consider other options, it’s reported.

There was hope the deal could be done on loan with obligation to buy for a total of €11.5m, but it seems as if that too has been turned down.

It’s reported the bid was eventually just under that, at €9.5m plus €2m in bonuses.

Manchester United continue to demand €20m for the centre-back, who has his heart set on the Stadio Olimpico after an excellent season on loan.
