CHRIS SMALLING is set to return to Manchester United and will be denied the chance of Europa League silverware with Roma this season.
Sky Italia claim the two clubs have failed to agree a loan extension for the defender.1Chris Smalling is set to return to Manchester United before the Europa League resumes
Smalling, 30, will now reportedly return to Old Trafford after Serie A finished.
Roma face Sevilla in the Europa League last-16 on Thursday and Smalling's departure will be a huge blow for both him and the club.
United resume their European campaign against LASK on Wednesday.
Talks are thought to have been ongoing for months over making Smalling's Roma loan deal permanent.
But they hit a roadblock as United refused to budge on their £18million transfer demand.
Roma would only stump up £16m for the 31-cap England international, who had lost his place in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's team.
The defender has turned his career around in Rome and was even dubbed "Smalldini" this season in reference to Italy and AC Milan legend Paolo Maldini.Most read in FootballWEATHER THE STORMHow Kieron Dyer ended up at Mayweather's mansion with 'women everywhere'PicturedSOR SUBJECTNeymar's ex-girlfriend Soraja Vucelic almost pops out of dress in steamy selfiePicturedGUNNER GO WILDArsenal fans take to streets to celebrate after historic 14th FA Cup winTaylor FlayedChelsea target Rice questions Taylor as fans blast 'disgraceful' refereeUS INTERESTWho is Henry Mauriss and what is Toon takeover rival to Bin Salman’s net worth?PicturedTOP FORMBrazil icon Ronaldo soaks up sun with partner Celina Locks on yacht in Formentera
