ROME – First it had to be Alderweireld, then Lovren, and finally Rugani. But a few days after the end of the transfer market, Roma chose the central defender of experience who asked Paulo Fonseca several times. It is Chris Smalling , central 1989 class owned by Manchester United, which should arrive in the Capital at this time.
The formula of the operation, reports Sky Sport, would be that of the onerous dry loan. The Giallorossi have found an agreement based on 3 million euros that will end up in the Red Devils, the same formula used by Inter for Sanchez.
The negotiation would begin a few days ago on the basis of 20 million euros, the first request of the Red Devils, and then become a loan with the right of redemption. In the end, the dry loan was opted for. Smalling will therefore undress the United jersey after nine years and 323 overall appearances, with 9 titles won, then go on a flight to Rome, where it will carry out medical examinations and sign its new contract.
