Pedulla: Roma & Man Utd agree €20m deal for Smalling

Roma have agreed a €20m loan-to-buy deal with Manchester United for Chris Smalling, Alfredo Pedulla reports.

The Englishman has been one of Roma’s best players this season, enjoying some of the best form of his career.

However, with Roma’s financial crisis it had seemed like Smalling was heading back to United.

The clubs have now struck a €3m loan deal to be followed by Roma buying Smalling for €17m (paid over three years).

Man United have accepted the structured €20m deal and Smalling’s wish has always been to stay in the capital.

Pedulla adds that with everything agreed, the operation is now down to the final details.

30-year-old Smalling has made 32 appearances in all competitions for Roma this season.

He joined United from Fulham in 2010 and was a regular in the side for nine seasons before moving to Serie A.
