Chris Smalling would leave Manchester United for a season-long deal with Italian club AS Roma, said reports on Thursday. Smalling, who arrived at Old Trafford in January 2010, was keen on leaving the Premier League club after falling down the pecking order under new United head coach Ole Gunnar Solskajer. The loan deal – subject to a medical – could be completed in the next 48 hours said reports after both clubs agreed on a €3m loan deal. United fans and netizens couldn’t control their excitement after seeing another of United’s flops depart the club for good. Chris Smalling Transfer Latest News Update: Manchester United Centre-Back to Join Serie A Club AS Roma on Season-Long Loan.

Smalling, 32, featured regularly under former United manager Jose Mourinho and was also a regular for the Norwegian when he arrived as an interim manager in December. But Smalling does not seem to be a part of Solskjaer’s long-term plans. He was left out of the squad for all three of Man United’s Premier League games this season and was only expected to play from the bench had he stayed.

The arrival of Harry Maguire for a record fee from Leicester City and also the emergence of Axel Tuanzebe, has seen Smalling fall behind at Old Trafford after nine years of service. United manager Soslkjaer prefers Victor Lindelof and Maguire as his first two centre-backs, while Tuanzebe seems to be the third-choice at the back-line for United. Tuanzebe, who impressed for Aston Villa last season, was used from the bench throughout the pre-season and also came in as a substitute against Chelsea.
