Chris Smalling signs for Serie A side Roma
Manchester United have reached an agreement with AS Roma for the transfer of defender Chris Smalling.
Smalling won the Premier League title in his very first season, 2010/11, and again in 2012/13. He also claimed the FA Cup (2015/16), the League Cup (2016/17) and the UEFA Europa League (2016/17) during his time with us, and started in all three of the finals that led to those triumphs.
He scored the first of his 18 goals for the club in a League Cup tie at Scunthorpe, and opened his Premier League account with a header against Chelsea in the opening weeks of the following term.
But it is for his goals against Manchester City that Smalling will be most fondly remembered by fans across the globe. He scored more against the Blues than against any other opposition, and his strikes contributed to three memorable wins. Arguably his most famous moment arrived during the Manchester derby of April 2018, when he fired home the winner as United came back from 2-0 down to win at the Etihad.
Everyone at Manchester United would like to thank Chris for his years of service and dedication, and wish him all the best for his future.
