- Chris Smalling wants Manchester United chiefs to settle his future
- The Englishman is currently wanted by Roma on a permanent move
- Smalling has been training on his own since he returned to Old Trafford
English professional footballer Chris Smalling has reportedly begged Manchester United chiefs for him to make a move to Italian side Roma before the end of the ongoing transfer.
The 30-year-old played for Roma last season on loan from Manchester United, and he made a return to Old Trafford after the end of the 2019/20 League season.
But since he returned, Chris Smalling has been made to be training on his own at Manchester United throwing his future into doubt with the Red Devils.
According to the report on UK Mirror citing Daily Mail, Chris Smalling is currently frustrated with his current situation at Manchester United.
Already, Roma who want him on a permanent deal have began their campaign in the Italian Serie A, and Manchester United have also played their first game in the 2020/21 Premier League season.
Smalling feels that Manchester United could have been more proactive in helping to facilitate his transfer rather than making things difficult for him.
Last season that Chris Smalling did not play for Manchester United, the Red Devils failed to win any title, but they qualified for the Champions League.
Ole Solskjaer is also interested in the signing of Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho this summer.
Manchester United will be facing Brighton in their next Premier League encounter in which a win is what the Red Devils need to redeem themselves.
The 27-year-old has refused to get his good form at Manchester United and has also failed to get regular playing time under manager Ole Solskjaer.
Jesse Lingard's current contract at Manchester United will expire at the end of next summer, but the Red Devils' gaffer want him to stay.
Lingard has been eyed by a number of Premier League clubs including Everton, West Ham and even Tottenham.
According to the report on UK Sun, the Old Trafford landlords are looking to extend his contract by a further 12 months, to make sure his market value of £25 million is kept.
