Man Utd defender Smalling still hopeful of Roma stay

Manchester United defender Chris Smalling remains hopeful of staying with Roma.

Corriere dello Sport says Smalling has reiterated his desire to stay at Roma.

He's made it clear he would happily stay in Italy and has 'reiterated this to Roma manger Paulo Fonseca over the past few days'.

But the issue of agreeing a transfer fee remains outstanding between the two clubs.

It's claimed Roma will never be able to afford €20 million asking price.
