Smalling set for permanent Roma deal?

Serie A giants AS Roma are reportedly confident of signing Chris Smalling on a permanent basis from Manchester United when the season comes to a close.

The England international joined the Giallorossi on a season-long loan from the Red Devils over the summer but they were not able to agree on the option to buy.

Earlier this week, it had been indicated that the Red Devils may consider keeping the services of Smalling next season with manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer impressed with the centre-back’s performances in Rome.

However, according to Sky Italia, that does not seem the case and the Italian are growingly optimistic of committing the central defender to a long-term contract with the club.

Smalling, who made 34 appearances for the Red Devils last season, is currently said to be valued at around £12.9m and that remains within the range of the Giallorossi next summer.

Roma recently registered a second successive league victory and that has propelled them into the top four. Next up, they have a tricky challenge with Napoli, who are one point behind them, making the trip to Stadio Olimpico.

Maddison set for Leicester City deal?

England international James Maddison will reportedly sign a new contract with the Foxes in the coming weeks, amidst interest from Premier League giants Man Utd. The Leicester City creative midfielder has been one of the top flight’s bright sparks so far this campaign, with his club now desperate to tie the player to a long-term new contract.

Since Maddison’s arrival from Norwich City, the midfielder has made his debut for England and has shone in the Premier League, helping Leicester City to the top half of the league table.

According to the Daily Mail, Man Utd manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants to add creativity to his midfield and sees Maddison as the perfect acquisition for the January transfer window, but the price tag of £65 million could scare off the Old Trafford outfit.

It is also understood that Tottenham and Arsenal also hold a long-term interest in Maddison, while French giants Paris St Germain have deployed scouts to monitor Leicester City games in recent times. 

Maddison has three years remaining on his current contract.

Tammy Abraham news

Abraham close to Chelsea extension

Chelsea are reportedly on the cusp of committing Tammy Abraham to a new long-term contract. 

The England international contributed 26 goals during a loan stint with Aston Villa last term and he has carried over the form with the Blues this term with nine goals across all competitions.

As a result, the 21-year-old has emerged as the undisputed striker under Frank Lampard and the club are now working towards extending his contract beyond the summer of 2022.

According to Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano, the Blues are in advanced negotiations with the striker regarding the renewal and they are very confident of getting a deal over the line.

Abraham presently earns around £50,000-a-week at the club but he stands the chance of trebling his wages after standing out with his performances upfront.

Abraham produced another impressive performance against Newcastle United at the weekend but Marcos Alonso eventually made the difference with the winning strike in the 73rd minute.

Greenwood: pens new United deal

Up and coming teenager Mason Greenwood has signed a new contract with Manchester United, signalling the club’s intent to make the England youth international an important member of the first team in the near future. Greenwood has put pen to paper on a contract with United until 2023.

Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has yet to expose Greenwood to too much playing time, but will be delighted to have brought through the player as a bit-part performer so far this season. 

“Mason has progressed through our outstanding academy and we are delighted with the progress he has made,” Solskjaer said.

“At such a young age, he already has great pace and intelligence and he is such a natural finisher. Since he came into the first team, he has really impressed everyone with his drive and attitude, he has all the attributes to become a top player.”

“Having grown up as a Manchester United fan, playing for the first team is a real dream come true,” Greenwood said of his new deal. 

“I know that, when I play for this club, I represent the whole academy and I want to repay the faith that my coaches have shown in me with my performances on the pitch. I am learning all the time from the manager and his coaching staff and I know that this is the perfect club to help me reach my potential.”
