Manchester United defender Chris Smalling is yet to make a decision over his future, amid transfer interest from Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur.

Smalling has enjoyed an impressive season out on loan with Serie A side Roma and could find himself back in the England fold after a string of sterling displays.

Roma are thought to be keen on keeping him in Italy next season, but face competition from several English clubs.

Premier League outfits Arsenal, Spurs, Leicester and Everton are all credited with interest in the former Fulham centre-half, according to the Daily Mail.

However, none have officially made contact with the 30-year-old and he is focused, for the time being, on completing the Serie A season upon the conclusion of the coronavirus lockdown.

Smalling has two years left on his current Manchester United deal and could even be offered the chance to resurrect his career at Old Trafford.

Talks are set to be held between him and Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in the summer, with Smalling yet to decide on where his future lies.

He and wife Sam have settled well in Rome and he may choose to make his move to Italy permanent.

Smalling isn’t the only Manchester United centre-back with an uncertain future.

Phil Jones has been linked with a move to Newcastle United, while Marcos Rojo is keen to resolve his future once he returns from his loan spell with Argentine outfit Estudiantes.
