Transfer: Solskjaer reacts as Man Utd sell Smalling to Roma

Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has described Chris Smalling’s move from Old Trafford to AS Roma as ‘a new experience and an adventure’.
SportzDom reports that Smalling has agreed a season-long loan deal to join the Serie A side.
But Solskjaer now believes that Smalling, who is Man United’s longest-serving player, will enjoy his time at Roma.
“Chris is on his way over [to Italy]. He’s flying over to Rome this morning to do a medical and all the final details,” Solskjaer told MUTV on Friday ahead of Man United’s Premier League clash against Southampton.
“At the moment we’ve got six centre-backs and it’s just something that popped up towards the end [of the European transfer window] in the last couple of days. Chris fancied the chance to go over there; it’s a new experience, new adventure.
“He’ll come back better for it because it’s a big club, it’s a good league. There aren’t too many English players who have been playing in Italy so I think he’ll enjoy it.”
Smalling made 34 appearances and scored 1 goal for the Man United in all competitions last season.
The England international joined Man United in 2010 from Fulham in a £10million deal.
