January 9 News When talking about Smalling’s contract renewal, Roma general manager Pinto said
Both parties hope to continue working together.
England defender Smalling is Roma’s main central defender, but his contract expires this summer.
Smalling himself has the option to renew his contract for one year, and Roma is willing to offer him a two-year contract, but requires players to accept a small salary cut.
In addition, Inter Milan, Juventus and other teams are also interested in Smalling.
Ahead of Roma’s game against Milan, Pinto spoke about Smalling’s contract extension.
"He is very focused, he will start today and has the opportunity to play a good game. The intention on both sides is to continue to work together and in due course we will resolve this issue."
Pinto also talked about Roma full-back Karlsdorp. Karlsdorp continued to lose the list in this game, and the possibility of leaving the team in winter is increasing.
"Karlsdorp? Now is not the time to talk about the transfer market. We are talking to Karlsdorp and his agent, trying to find the right solution for both parties."
