Roma are reportedly frustrated with Manchester United's decision to raise their asking price for defender Chris Smalling.

Roma are reportedly struggling to meet Manchester United's asking price for Chris Smalling.

Having been allowed to spend the campaign on loan at Stadio Olimpico, the centre-back has made a total of 23 starts in all competitions.

While not possessing the option to push through a permanent deal, Roma and Smalling are keen to continue working together during the next campaign.

However, according to The Express, a transfer appears unlikely at this stage due to United raising their valuation of the 30-year-old.

Despite Roma being prepared to pay £12m, it has been suggested that United value the England international at £17m.

Roma allegedly need to qualify for the Champions League in order to fund a full-time switch for Smalling.
