However, Calciomercato have confirmed that Roma have launched a new bid for the defender. The new offer of €17 million is pretty close to Man United’s €20 million valuation of Chris Smalling. Therefore, they’ve met his asking price after initially paying €3 million to secure the player’s loan.

Smalling has played 16 games for Roma in all competitions and has scored 2 goals and provided 1 assist.
