Smalling set for loan spell with As Roma
The Serie A side will pay United €3m for the loan.
They won’t be obliged to buy the 29-year-old out.
United indeed have too many centre backs.
Chris Smalling will spend this season on loan at AS Roma. Top source in Fabrizio Romano breaks the news. The loan will have no obligation to buy, United will receive €3m:
However, United needed to start offloading centre backs which is the most stacked up position at the club. With Smalling in, United have as many as seven players for two starting spots.
Marcos Rojo would probably be gutted to know someone else leaves before him. As per rumours, the Argentinian is eager to play but United vetoed a sale to Everton on the final day of the transfer market.
