Man Utd's Smith set for Middlesbrough talks

Manchester United have granted Alan Smith permission to speak with Middlesbrough about a £6 million switch.

The Mirror says Smith has agreed to speak to Boro and may even fly back from the Far East tour early in a bid to sort out his future.

Boro are prepared to pay Smith a huge salary to tempt him into the deal.

They know he is a little reluctant to join and would rather go to Everton.
