The England centre-back is on loan at Roma this season and has done a fantastic job, just over halfway through the season, with the Red Wolves hoping to buy it out. Smolling himself wants to leave united for a permanent move to roma and told his agent to push for the deal.
Earlier it was revealed that the offer for Rome was ￡13m, plus a floating gold clause of 2.5m, not far from the asking price of ￡17m for Manchester United, with a possible deal between the two sides in January.
Manchester united boss solskjaer sent his blessing to the english last month when he spoke of smolling. \"Chris is doing great, and we know that if you change circumstances, sometimes it's risky. But Chris met the challenge well and enjoyed the life there, which was a brand new experience for him. \".
“With his personality, we're not willing to stay (United) and we're happy for him because we can see him as a top player (in Serie A).
