United unwilling to extend Smalling loan


Manchester United will not be extending Chris Smalling’s current loan deals with Roma, according to Sky Sports.

Reportedly, the Red Devils are unwilling to extend both the defender’s loan into next season or have him remain on loan any further than the current arrangemen — as they’re keen to reach a deal for a permanent transfer.

Smalling’s loan was set to originally expire in June, however, the two clubs reached an agreement to extend the deal until the first week of August.

Under the current deal, Smalling will return to Old Trafford following the completion of the Giallorossi’s Serie A campaign, which ends on the 2nd of August against Juventus.

Should Roma be unable to reach a deal with United, Smalling would not be eligible to play in their Europa League showdown against Sevilla on the 6th or August.
