Man United Put Heavy Price Tag On Smalling As Roma Push For A permanent Deal

Roma are reconsidering a permanent move for defender Chris Smalling after Manchester United slapped a £25million price tag on the 30-year-old. 
The former Fulham defender joined the Serie A club on loan last summer after a frank conversation with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer about his future following Harry Maguire’s arrival from Leicester. Smalling has impressed in the Italian capital and Roma are keen on making his season-long loan deal a permanent one.
However, sources have said that the Italians were ‘shocked’ by United’s insistence that it will require a bid of £25m to sign Smalling next summer. 
United believe Smalling’s reputation has been enhanced during his stay at the Stadio Olimpico and believe that his status as a homegrown British player makes him even more valuable.
Smalling would prefer to stay at Roma and believes his chances of a place in England’s squad for the European Championships have been aided by his move to Italy, where he’s made 28 appearances
