Chris Smalling has not had the easiest ride at Manchester United over the last couple of seasons as the centre-back has been ridiculed a handful of times for his performances.
Newcastle United recently recruited a new defender in the form of Fabian Schar from Deportivo La Coruna, but the North-East outfit need to keep an eye out on a potential replacement for Jamaal Lascelles.
There is currently no indication that the Englishman intends to leave St James’ Park, but he is regularly linked with a move away.
With that being said, perhaps the Magpies should monitor some high-profile figures, including Smalling.
According to a recent report from the Daily Mail, United manager Jose Mourinho needs to offload one of his defenders in order to launch a bid for Leicester City centre-back Harry Maguire.
Smalling could potentially be up for sale due to his inconsistencies at the back, and the Magpies could get a reasonable deal given that he has just one year left on his contract.
We asked you if a move should be made, and a huge amount of Newcastle fans would back the idea.
