It seems Manchester United and Roma finally found a deal for the permanent transfer of Chris Smalling.
Italian outlet Sport MediaSet writes that Giallorossi officials were in England last night and agreed the move for an amount of €15m plus bonuses.
It’s claimed that Smalling’s wish was ‘decisive’, as the player really wanted to be back to the Italian capital following his loan spell in the last season.
He’s now ‘expected for his medicals’ at Trigoria, where he would also sign his contract with Roma.
He agreed to a three-year deal, and will make €3m per season at the Serie A side.
The confidence from the Italian media has been pretty big in the past few hours.
Earlier today, we had already covered a couple of local pieces claiming that Roma’s latest offer should be enough to convince Manchester United about the transfer.
Smalling joined the Red Devils on a €8m deal from Fulham back in 2010 and made 323 appearances in his ten years at the club.
