Roma and Manchester United have agreed to extend on-loan defender Chris Smalling deal beyond June 30th. Roma also extend Arsenal and ex-United player Henrikh Mkhitaryan’s deal.

With the uncertainty of when the current 2019-20 season will end, most of the loan agreements we set to end on June 30th and now clubs are scrambling to get the agreements extended in case the season does resume. 

Both players currently away on loan and stars with contracts expiring on June 30 face an uncertain future with the deadline for the season to be ended lifted.

Corriere dello Sport claim Roma have reached an agreement with United and the Gunners to extend both loan agreements until the season’s real end – whenever that may be.

Smalling is set to return to Old Trafford and battle for a spot in the backline although Roma are hoping to keep him in the capital with a new contract.
