Fabio Borini is on his way to AC Milan. Sunderland and AC have today agreed a fee that will see the Bentivoglio born attacker return to his homeland. Borini will head to Milan in a deal worth 5.3m.
I Rossoneri are not short of cash after being taken over by the Chinese group Sino-Europe for a sum of £630 million – their mission is to get AC Milan back to the top of Italy and Europe. The group mean business, the Italian side have already splashed over £70m on new signings Andre Silva (£32.3m), Mateo Mussachio (£15.3m), Ricardo Rodriguez (£15.3m) and Frank Kessie (Loan fee – £6.8m).
The Italian, who impressed with his season on loan at Sunderland in the 2013-14 season managing to score 7 goals in 32 league games, he scored home and away against arch-rivals Newcastle United, against Chelsea in Sunderland’s great escape and in the League Cup final against Manchester City and thus became a fan-favourite on Wearside. Borini signed permanently for the Wearsiders from Liverpool in 2015 for a fee of £8million and has not repeated the same level of performance or goals with a ratio of 7 goals in 50 games and has thus fallen out of favour with Sunderland fans.
