Manchester United will not extend Alexis Sanchez, and Chris Smalling's current loan deals with Inter Milan and Roma respectively
Chris Smalling has been brilliant at Roma

Smalling has rebuilt his reputation as a no-nonsense defender in the Italian capital. He has proven himself to be a key player for the Italian capital outfit as they fall short of a Champions League birth.

Inter, on the other hand, are still in contention to finish second. Sanchez endured a tough start to life at the San Siro. His form has significantly picked up since the restart.

Both players will be big missed for the Italian duo’s Europa League campaigns. With the competition set to resume in August, they will have to make do without their loaned stars.

This could work out well for United who are also in the tournament. Denying our prospective rivals top players weakens them while at the same time boosting our chances.

It makes more sense when one takes a look t the draw. We could potentially face Roma in the semifinals before possibly facing off against Inter in the final.

Whether this will force Roma and Inter’s hands to make the deals permanent remains to be seen.

United face Leicester City this weekend in a winner takes all duel for a top-four finish. If things go against us, we will have to win the Europa League to qualify for next season’s Champions League.

Weakening our prospective opponents is a shrewd strategy. However, what effect it has in us offloading the Smalling and Sanchez remains to be seen.
