Chris Smalling completes AS Roma move

Manchester United defender Chris Smalling has completed his season-long loan move to AS Roma.

The Italian club revealed on Friday afternoon that Smalling was in the latter stages of completing the move, sharing pictures of him in the medical room on their social media pages. 

Smalling was also pictured with an AS Roma scarf and looked ready to start life with the Italian giants, who are in the Europa League. 

 

 

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had earlier confirmed that the defender was moving out on loan, as he could not guarantee him regular football. 

"We've got six fit centre-backs. I couldn't promise him regular football," he said as quoted by BBC. 

"It's a big club, a good league. There's not many English players who have had the chance to play in Italy and I'm sure he'll come back stronger and better for it," he added. 

Smalling was a key member of the side last season, making 34 appearances in total, but will have most likely found game time hard to come by, after the club signed Harry Maguire. 

Smalling, 29, joined United from Fulham in 2010 and has a contract at Old Trafford running until December 2022.
