Man Utd and Roma still struggling to reach agreement over Smalling deal

    Date published: Wednesday 22nd July 2020 4:55

    Manchester United and Roma are still ‘some way apart’ in their valuations of Chris Smalling as negotiations over a deal for the centre back continue. 

    Smalling has spent the 2019/20 campaign on loan with the Italian club, making 26 Serie A appearances.

    The defender is understood to be happy at the Stadio Olimpico, while Roma are also keen to keep him.

    Talks regarding another loan or permanent move have been ongoing for some time. However, the two parties are still struggling to reach an agreement according to a report in Gazzetta dello Sport, cited on Sport Witness.

    They say that United are demanding €23million for Smalling, who is contracted with the Red Devils until summer 2022.

    But, as things stand, Roma have only offered €17million for the 30-year-old. The report adds that €3million of that would be up-front in their proposal. The other €14million paid at a later stage.

    The ‘Giallorossi’ are believed to be in a difficult financial position due to COVID-19. Therefore, they can’t afford to pay the fee in one go.

    They are in daily contact with United chiefs as they attempt to thrash out a deal though, with this week said to ‘decisive’.


    Ideally, Roma want Smalling’s future to be settled in the next two weeks. The deadline to submit squads for next month’s Europa League is August 3rd, and Roma want to include the ex-England international in theirs.


    Another defender who could depart Old Trafford in the coming months is Diogo Dalot.

    The right-back has failed to break into Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s plans, playing just 11 times this season.

    And he could be offered an escape route by Everton and Carlo Ancelotti. It is said the The Toffees are readying an offer for the Portuguese player.
