Marcos Rojo “staying definitely”, says Solskjaer, who “can see Matteo Darmian leaving”; United boss also talks Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Alexis Sanchez

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed centre-back Chris Smalling will join Roma on loan.

The news of Smalling’s move to Roma was broken on Thursday in Italy, who say the 29-year-old will join the Serie A club on a season-long loan. United will receive a fee of £2.7m. “It’s just come up the last couple of days, this opportunity for Chris and we’ve sat down yesterday and discussed it,” said Solskjaer ahead of Saturday’s trip to Southampton.
