Roma were quick to deny a report from Tuttomercatoweb claiming Chris Smalling had asked the club to leave by the end of the season.
Moreover, James Featherstone – the agent of the English defender – informed Fabrizio Romano of Sky Sport that they are still in talks with the Giallorossi over a possible contract renewal.
“The future of Chris is not something that is being played out in the Teatro dell’Opera di Roma,” Featherstone said. “Similar to there, the audience do not engage with the performers.”
“We continue to be in talks with Roma,” he added. “Chris is focused on delivering more success for Roma this season.”
