Manchester United Demanded £18.1m For Chris Smalling And Only Got £2.7m From Roma

Manchester United fans are furious at how the club managed to only pocket £2.7m for Chris Smalling when their initial price tag was £18.1m.

Reports in Italy confirmed on Thursday that the United defender, 29, is 'on the verge' of signing for Roma in a loan deal.

According to reports, United and Roma's negotiations even included the possibility of a £2.7m loan with the option to make the move permanent for £15.4m.

However, the Italian press claims that the final agreement is only a £2.7m loan without the option to buy the English centre-back permanently.

And United fans have flocked to Twitter and blasted United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward over his handling of the transfer.

Smalling has become the third United player to head to Serie A this summer.

Belgian striker Romelu Lukaku became Inter Milan's club-record signing when they splashed out a whopping £74m on him.
