Manchester United defender Chris Smalling close to joining Roma?

:Headline: Manchester United defender Chris Smalling close to joining Roma?:
Manchester United defender Chris Smalling is reportedly close to joining Roma on a season-long loan deal.
By , Senior Reporter | 1mo

Roma have reportedly moved to the brink of signing Manchester United defender Chris Smalling on a season-long loan deal.

The centre-back has spent the last nine seasons at Old Trafford, making a total of 281 starts and 42 substitute appearances in all competitions.

However, the Englishman now finds himself behind Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelof in the pecking order, with Phil Jones, Axel Tuanzebe and Marcos Rojo also in reserve.

Given the options available to manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Sky in Italy claims that United have given the green light for Smalling to spend the campaign at Stadio Olimpico.

The report adds that Roma will pay a £2.7m loan fee, while also having the option of signing the 29-year-old on a permanent basis next summer.

Smalling has not featured in any of United's opening three Premier League fixtures this season.
