Roma continue to work on keeping Smalling

It’s no secret that Roma want to keep Manchester United loanee Chris Smalling, who has become an integral part of Paulo Fonseca’s set-up.

Today, Teleradiostereo reported that agent Jozo Palac has been tasked with the role of intermediary in the negotiations between the clubs.

Reportedly, Roma CEO Guido Fienga has given Palac the mandate to negotiate on behalf of the Giallorossi with the English side for a permanent move for the Englishman.

There is confidence that the deal could close within the next two weeks on the basis of a loan with an obligation to buy set at €17-18 million.

Smalling’s contract with the Red Devils expires in 2022, but both the defender and the Giallorossi want to make his stay in the Italian capital a permanent one.
