Not only Smalling, Roma-United also discussing Fred

John Solano

Roma and Manchester United are closing in on a deal for Chris Smalling after months of negotiations, but the English defender is not the only player being discussed between the clubs.

TeleRadioStereo reports that Roma and the Red Devils are also in talks for a potential deal involving midfielder Fred.

The 27 year-old has had problems breaking through at the Premier League side ever since joining from Shakhtar Donetsk in the summer of 2018 and could be on the move in the coming weeks.

A transfer to the Italian capital would allow Fred to be reunited with his former Shakhtar manager, Paulo Fonseca.

Reportedly, the sides are discussing a potential loan deal for the Brazilian, which would include an obligation to buy.
