Inter Milan Target Still Hasn’t Made Decision On Roma Contract Extension Offer, Italian Media Report
Roma defender Chris Smalling still has not made a decision on whether or not he will accept the Giallorossi’s contract extension offer amid interest from Inter and other clubs.
This according to today’s print edition of Rome-based newspaper Corriere dello Sport, via FCInterNews, who report that the 33-year-old is still weighing up his future as his current club hope that he will decide to stay.
Smalling would have some reasons to remain at Roma, where he is settled in both on and off the pitch.
However, the former Manchester United defender is also considering the prospective advantages of a move away, and so he has not yet given a response to his club’s offer of a new two-year deal.
Inter are interested in signing the 33-year-old at the end of the season on a free transfer, particularly in the event that one or both of Stefan de Vrij or Francesco Acerbi aren’t at the club for next season.
Moreover, Juventus are also keen, and teams in the Premier League have also sounded out the Englishman.
In any event, the Corriere report, Smalling is still thinking about his future and has not given a decisive response to Roma regarding their offer of a new deal, one way or the other.
