This rumour, if you trace it all the way back, appears to have emerged from a fake account on Twitter by the name of Peter Harding.

But why?

Hopefully this isn't the last defender they are bringing in. He isn't better than what they already had.

I'd have kept him and got rid of Phil "Duncan Edwards" Jones instead

Same, I think he is more reliable than most of the defenders we have and that's the sad part, cause he isn't even that good. But he isn't the worst. Jones done nothing in those 8 years he has been at the club apart from being permanent injured and making weird faces during games. Bailey is getting injured every 2 games, Rojo is not good either.

I remember when Phil Jones first appeared on the scene at Blackburn as quite a dynamic deep-lying midfielder who could carry the ball xD.

City Centre is nice, but it’s a shithole outside the tourist attractions.

In fairness mate footballers don’t join a London club and then move to Croydon or Bethnal Green

Roma has published a picture of loanee Chris Smalling, 30, in their kit for next season and are confident of signing the Manchester United and England defender on a permanent deal. (Corriere dello Sport - in Italian)Arrow.png.11dba306a38513eaf6af67a1e84e176b.png

Manchester United will not extend their current loan agreements with Roma for Smalling or with Inter Milan for Chile forward Alexis Sanchez, 31, as they want both players to move on permanently. (Sky Sports)Arrow.png.11dba306a38513eaf6af67a1e84e176b.png

If Man United are after anything resembling the €20 million that's been quoted, Roma should move on. Spending that much on a 30 year old, with their financial difficulties, would be a mistake. 

Made that mistake with Pastore and now are desperate to get him off their wage bill. Not looking for austerity at the club, but a change of strategy and hopefully more of a chance for some of the talented young players at the club.

Manchester United are ‘raising the wall’ in front of Inter Milan and Roma, who are trying to secure loan extensions for Chris Smalling and Alexis Sanchez.

The United duo have spent the season on loan in Italy, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer making it clear last summer that he was not part of their plans.

Both players have rebuilt their reputations – Smalling more successfully than Sanchez – and Inter and Roma are keen to keep them as long as possible.

Both clubs want to extend their loan deals to cover the return of the Europa League later this year but, according to Gazzetta dello Sport, Manchester United have said no to their proposals so far. Sports WitnessArrow.png.90a53df78cd9df66f8252a337b925cde.png

Roma offering €15million but also want Dalot on loan.

No idea about Dalot, but they desperately need someone to play right back/wing back and he can't be worse than the shrinking Bruno Peres.

Would much prefer another younger centre back who hasn't already found his ceiling, like Rugani who is seemingly available, as this is just another bandage for another two years. Just hope he won't be on near the wages he is probably on at Manchester United.

A thoroughly 'Meh' transfer.
