Roma defender Chris Smalling finds himself at something of a crossroads between his current club and Inter.
This according to today’s print edition of Rome-based newspaper Il Messaggerio, via FCInterNews, who report that the Giallorossi are offering the 33-year-old a two-year contract extension, whilst the Nerazzurri would be ready to increase his wages.
Smalling’s current contract with Roma expires at the end of June 2023.
Once the Englishman plays 50% of all available minutes in Serie A this season, he will have the option to extend his contract by a further season at the same terms.
However, Rome Sporting Director Tiago Pinto is ready to try and convince Smalling with a two-year contract instead.
Meanwhile, Inter are keen on signing the former Manchester United defender on a free transfer.
The Nerazzurri’s strategy would be to offer Smalling higher wages than he would be earning at Roma to try and convince him to join.
