Manchester United: Fans react to news on Chris Smalling’s potential return

Chris Smalling has enjoyed a career revival since leaving Manchester United for Roma last summer.

The arrival of Harry Maguire may have seen Smalling’s game time become limited, with the centre-back deciding to leave to get more minutes on the pitch.

He’s been an instant hit in the Italian capital, playing 13 games and already wearing the captain’s armband.

Smalling has made 1.2 tackles, 2 interceptions and 4.4 clearances per game this season for the Italian giants (via WhoScored), helping to bring stability to their defensive unit.

Given United’s shaky start to the season, it comes as little surprise that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants the former England international to return at the end of the season.

At 6 foot 4, which makes him a signifcant presence, he currently has a market value of £18m (per TransferMarkt), about a quarter of what they paid for Maguire in the summer.

While Smalling divided opinion in his time at United, he made over 300 appearances and won two Premier League titles.

Here’s how some United fans reacted to the news:
