Smalling completes €15m move to Roma06-Oct-2020, 03:05 am
On Monday, though, the two sides came to terms on a deal, with Smalling heading back to Italy in a transfer worth€15m (£13.6m/$17.7m)plus add ons.
Smalling impressed during his loan spell with the Italian side last season, making 37 appearances in all competitions while scoring three goals in Serie A.
The defender had been pushing for the move all summer, but was forced to wait it out as the two clubs negotiated his transfer.
He is now set to rejoin the Serie A side, who have earned four points from their first three league matches this season.
Smalling initially came up with Maidstone United and then Fulham before catching the eye of Man Utd with the latter bymaking 18 appearances in all competitions in 2009-10.
He signed with Man Utd in January 2010 and joined up with the club that summer, going on to make 323 appearances across nine seasons with the club.
Smalling's departure comes shortly after Man Utd confirmed another defensive addition in fullback Alex Telles, who became the club's second signing of the summer after Dutch midfielder Donny van de Beek.
The club is also expected to complete a deal for Edinson Cavani, who appears set to join Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side soon.
