AS Roma are reportedly growing frustrated by the lack of breakthrough with Manchester United over the permanent transfer of Chris Smalling.
The Englishman spent the 2019/20 season on loan with the Italian side, where he was impressive, and they want to sign him permanently.
However, after weeks of negotiations, there seems to be a stalemate, with both clubs far apart in their valuations of the centre back.
Man United are said to be seeking at least, £20 million for Smalling, who is reportedly not a part of Olé Gunnar Solskjaer’s plans for this season, but Roma want to pay less.
The Serie A club are said to be tired of the situation, and are now looking at possible alternatives, as they try to get a centre back before the beginning of the new Italian football season.
Meanwhile, Smalling is already looking forward to leaving Old Trafford, and reportedly no longer trains with the rest of the team, after being told he’s not a part of Solskjaer’s plans this season.
