Manchester United defender Chris Smalling is willing to take a pay cut to secure a permanent move to AS Roma in the summer.
Smalling joined Roma on loan last summer and has been an important member of the Giallorossi this season.
The England international had been able to rediscover his form and is considered as a key feature in Paulo Fonseca plans. It was earlier reported that Roma are willing to sign the defender permanently this summer but his wages could prove problematic.
However the 30-year-old is willing to reduce his salary demands in order to sign a new contract with the Italian side. Despite this, there is also renewed interest in former United star with the likes of Arsenal and Tottenham said to be monitoring his progress.
Manchester United could also recall the player as he still retains good relationship with the coaching staff at Old Trafford. Although a move to Roma still looks the most likely option at the moment.
Smalling has endured his highs and lows in his career since making the move to United from Fulham.
Roma looks like best destination for the defender at this point of his career and it will be interesting to see how things pan out in the coming weeks.
