One (small) problem with option C is the usage of the word should.

He requested that X return Y.
He requested that X should return Y. ← The should is not needed here.

Doesn't the above option imply that Mona Lisa be returned to Italy while simultaneously being hung at the Louvre museum. Meaning seems ambiguous compared to option C.
