Original title: 12 million! Rome quotes Manchester United fringe, Red Devils insist on asking price of 20 million
Smalling, the central defender who joined Roma on loan last season, was recognized by Roma coach Fonseca, and Fonseca also hopes to buy it out. According to news from the British media "The Guardian", Rome has currently offered 12 million euros for Smalling, but Manchester United believes that Rome's bid is too low, and the Red Devils' psychological price is set at 20 million euros.
Smalling chose to leave the team last summer because he could not get enough playing time at Manchester United. He joined Roma on loan. After joining Roma, Smalling conquered the fans and the team with his excellent athletic form. He was last season. Roma played 37 times in all competitions, scoring 3 goals and assisting 2 times.
Since Smalling and Roma have only signed a one-season loan contract, Smalling has returned to Manchester United. Roma coach Fonseca wanted to buy out Smalling, and made an offer of 12 million euros for this. However, Manchester United believes that Roma's bid is too low, and the Red Devils executives set the psychological price of Smalling at 20 million euros. And this has become a constraint on this transaction.
It is also reported that Rome will again raise its offer to Smalling in the near future, but Smalling is not the first choice for Rome. Once Manchester United does not cut the price, Rome will abandon the introduction of Smalling. Barcelona’s Todi Expo will become Rome’s second choice. In addition to Rome, Serie A giants Inter Milan are also very interested in Smalling, and the Nerazzurri also hope to introduce Smalling after the sale of Skriniar.
