Journalism has been my prior job during childhood. With all things been so good for me, I am able to achieve my aim and fulfill the promise I made to my family. I am now a renowned sports journalist working with Ghana News Page.

Roma and Inter Milan will need to extend their loan agreements for Chris Smalling and Alexis Sanchez before Manchester United allow the pair to play in the remaining Europa League fixtures, sources have told ESPN.

Smalling and Sanchez moved to Italy on loan last summer and the deals were extended to cover the end of the Serie A season in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic. Those deals are due to end after the final domestic games of the season on Aug. 2 and do not cover the Europa League mini tournament in Germany.

UEFA rules would allow Smalling and Sanchez to play against United if they can agree on a further extension. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side could meet Roma in the semifinals Aug. 16 and Inter in the final five days later.

Smalling has impressed at Roma, making 33 appearances in all competitions and scoring twice. Sanchez has scored three times in 25 games this term.

Sources have told ESPN that United are open to the possibility of negotiating fresh loan deals for both players, which would cover the Europa League and the 2020-21 season with an option to buy next summer.
