Liverpool’s Fabio Borini could be on his way out of the Anfield club, making a return to his homeland with AC Milan, reports the Daily Mail. Borini has been stalling over the need to make a decision for his future all summer, but the Italian giants could be about to table an offer that the striker cannot refuse.
The news comes during a summer in which Sunderland have been kept waiting by Borini for a long time. The striker turned out for the Black Cats last season on loan, and impressed manager Gus Poyet enough for the Stadium of Light club to push for a permanent transfer this summer. However, Borini has been reluctant to make the move and could now refuse it altogether.
The 23 year old is thought to favour the prospect of taking another temporary move away from Liverpool, and so would prefer a loan spell with Milan over a full transfer to Sunderland. The Italian club are thought to be happy at the prospect of bringing Borini into the fold temporarily, as they are now searching for a striker to replace Mario Balotelli.
Balotelli has made the opposite move to that being proposed for Borini, in that the striker switched Milan for Liverpool at the beginning of the week. Balotelli is now training with Brendan Rodgers and the first team, whilst Milan try to find a replacement for him before the transfer window closes. Borini could become that replacement, should the player agree to a move to the Serie A.
