Red Devils have reportedly put a €28m valuation on loanee Chris Smalling, which could, in turn, put Giallorossi off from turning it into a permanent deal this summer.
England international has enjoyed a return to top form during his stint with the Italian club thus far, establishing himself as a crucial figure in the side having made 28 appearances across all tournaments to date.
In turn, having impressed the Giallorossi, it may have been enough for them to consider making his move to the capital permanent, but there could be a major obstacle standing in the way.
Red Devils are said to want €28m for Smalling, which in turn is said to potentially ready to complicate things for Roma.
Further, it’s added that Gunners are also interested in the defensive ace, and so the opportunities of seeing Chris extend his stay at Roma could be diminishing.
Time will tell how the situation plays out as having enjoyed such a personal resurgence in Italy, the English centre-back may favour continuing with Roma rather than returning to the Premier League.
However, if the Serie A club can’t afford his touted price-tag, he may not have a choice but to consider alternative options moving forward.
