Manchester United’s Chris Smalling is a player who has grown in confidence as the season has progressed under Van Gaal, so-much-so that he has become a sought-after player for a few fellow Premier League sides.
Arsenal and Wenger were thought to be preparing a bid in the region of £12million for the man who is out of contract in just over a years time, but Louis van Gaal is ready to reject any approaches for the 25-year old, claim the Manchester Evening News.
Earlier on in the week, The Telegraph reported that United were relaxed about his contractual situation, and Smalling himself seems to be thoroughly enjoying life in Manchester.
It’d be an odd one if he were to leave Old Trafford in the not too distant future, and its a deal that I cannot see happening anytime soon.
