Roma manager insists club will ‘do everything’ to keep Smalling

Chris Smalling has found his form in Italy since joining last summer and his future at Manchester United has been thrown into doubt.

The England international is unlikely to be in Solskjær’s plans and Smalling, who is said to be highly ambitious, is unlikely to take on a rotational role.

The former Fulham defender has been, according to many, the best defender in Serie A this season and although he is currently just on loan in Rome, he could join former United player Ashley Young in making a permanent switch to Italy.

Roma manager Paulo Fonseca has insisted that the club wants to sign Smalling when his loan move expires.

“I will do everything I can to keep him at Roma next year too. I know he wants to stay, let’s see what happens,” he said.

“He’s an amazing man, so humble, so professional. He is adored by the fans and established himself as one of the leaders in the dressing room.

“It’s not easy for English central defenders to adapt so quickly to Italian football, the record there isn’t good, but he has been amazing.”
