Roma reportedly end their interest in securing a permanent deal for Manchester United defender Chris Smalling.

Roma have reportedly ended their interest in signing Manchester United defender Chris Smalling on a permanent basis.

The England international has spent the season on loan at Stadio Olimpico, making a total of 37 appearances in all competitions.

With the 30-year-old being out of favour at Old Trafford, Roma have been hopeful of negotiating a deal for the centre-back.

However, according to Sky Sport Italia, United are not prepared to budge on their £18m valuation of the player.

Having missed out on the Champions League, that has seemingly led to Roma informing the Premier League outfit that they will no longer be pursuing a transfer.

Smalling effectively has three years remaining on his contract at United.
