United boss Solskjaer: “We’ve not had any bids up to the level that we want”.


Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer spoke today following his side’s 3-0 EFL Cup victory over Luton Town and addressed the situation regarding Chris Smalling.

The Giallorossi have been pursuing the 30 year-old defender for several months after his superb performances while on loan at Roma last season.

“At the moment, we’ve not had any bids up to the level that we want, so that’s the situation,” stated Solskjaer.

When asked about the Englishman’s price tag, the Norwegian manager answered: “That’s not down to me, is it? I’m not the one negotiating between the clubs, but we haven’t had sufficient bids there and that’s it.”

Meanwhile, Roma are preparing a new bid for Smalling after their latest offer of €12 million was rejected by the Red Devils, according to Sky Sport.
