Inter Milan launching bid for Man Utd defender Smalling

Inter Milan are launching a bid for Manchester United defender Chris Smalling.

The defender was deemed surplus to requirements by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer last summer and was shipped off to Roma on a season-long loan.

And while Roma are struggling to meet United's valuation, Gazzetta dello Sport says Inter coach Antonio Conte is plotting a move to add the 30-year-old to his ex-United men at the San Siro.

Last summer he moved to bring both Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez from Old Trafford.

Ashley Young then joined them at Inter in January.

Now Conte could be about to add his FOURTH former United man if he completes the potential transfer of Smalling, with United wanting £21m to sell.
