Manchester United are refusing to budge in their valuation of Chris Smalling, and want £25million from Roma for the on-loan defender.

Smalling has put in some colossal displays for the Italian outfit this season and his performances have been enough to convince the club to bring him in on a permanent deal.

They have opened discussions with the Old Trafford hierarchy, pitching an initial £13m bid with £3.5m in add-ons, but United turned down that proposal and believe Smalling has justified the price tag they have mooted, according to The Sun.

The 30-year-old is said to be keen to secure a switch to Roma permanently after settling in well to life in the Italian capital, and would even consider taking a cut to his £130,000 a week wages to push a deal through.
