Man Utd put Smalling up for sale

Manchester United are prepared to sell Chris Smalling.

TheMirror says United have slapped a £30million valuation on Chris Smalling – and won't let him leave on loan in this window.

United are also prepared to listen to last-day cash offers for Phil Jones and Marcus Rojo – with Everton interested in the versatile Argentinian defender - but aren't interested in loan moves, preferring them off the wage bill completely.

Everton failed in a bid to take the 29 year old defender on a season-long loan deal and were rocked when United said they'd only consider a permanent deal – at £30million.

Despite the arrival of Harry Maguire in an £80million world record fee and the certainty he'll be partnered with Swedish international Victor Lindelof as the first-choice centre-back pairing, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer still sees Smalling as a valuable part of United's squad.
