No Loan Deals
Man Utd looking to strike deals with Serie A clubs Roma and Inter Milan for permanent transfers of Alexis Sanchez and Chris Smalling.
Smalling and Sanchez’s loan stints were due to expire in June originally.
The loan deals of both the players were extended till August in order to be able to play out the end of the Serie A season following the shutdown.
Sky Sports reports that United are unwilling to extend both players’ loans into next season or have them stay out on loan any further than the current arrangement.
No Future at Manchester
It is clear from the news that both players are not in the plans of Ole’s vision and Club’s future.
Roma are keen on tying the 30-year-old down to a permanent deal at the Stadio Olimpico.
Smalling has played 34 matches for Roma this season across all competitions, scoring 2 goals and assisting 2 goals.
Roma manager Paulo Fonseca has already secured an extension of laon deal of Henrikh Mkhitaryan from Arsenal
Roma may also look to sign Willian or Pedro as their Chelsea contract expires at the end of the season.
Sanchez has featured in 26 matches for Inter this season, registering 3 goals and 10 assists across all competitions.
Conte is a admirer of Sanchez’s abilities and brings an unconventional attacking threat to the Inter side who sit at 3rd place in Serie-A.
Both Sanchez and Smalling’s capabilities complement the styles of the current sides that they play for respectively.
Roma are a possible semi-final opponent for United.
Inter may meet Solskjaer’s side in the final should they progress through to the decider in Cologne on August 21.
Needless to say it is possible that United’s path may cross the likes of Inter and Roma as Ole’s side looks to clinch atleast 1 silverware this season.
