Italian giants AS Roma want to sign Manchester United defender Chris Smalling on a permanent deal.
Smalling moved to Rome over last summer on a loan deal after falling below the pecking order at United and the England defender has impressed in his first months in Italy.
According to Roma’s team manager Morgan De Sanctis while speaking to Sky Italia they will be relying on Smalling stance that he was enjoying himself in Italy.
"It is well known we are trying to find a solution that makes everyone happy. We are in no rush, we want to get this right, and can also rely on the player, who said he is happy at Roma," he said.
United decided to acquire the services of Harry Maguire over the summer; a move that narrowed Smalling’s chances in the first team. Apart from Maguire, United have Victor Lindelof and Axel Tuanzebe fighting for a position at center back.
The 30-year-old has made a total of 14 appearances for Roma in all competitions this season and has been hailed as one of their best business.
