Official: Roma buy out Borriello for €10 million


MARCO BORRIELLO has been bought out by Roma.

It is no secret that Borriello would stay at Roma and won’t come back to Milan but according to Sky Sport 24, Roma have given Milan €10 million today in order to keep the Neapolitan in their ranks next season.

The 29-year-old striker spent the season on loan with the Giallorossi after space became limited in Milan following the arrivals of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Robinho at the end of last summer’s mercato.

Borriello’s first half of the season was positive but later on he struggled and was dropped to the bench. There were reports that he did not get along so well was Roma caretaker Vincenzo Montella.

With the arrival of Luis Enrique to Roma, Borriello, who scored 11 goals last year, hopes to do well.

Update [20:00 CET]

It is now Official: Borriello is a Roma player. The payment for Borriello will be spread over three years: Milan will make €3.4 million this year from Borriello, and €3.3 million for the two years after that.

I always liked Borriello, but in my opinion this is the right move. There is depth at that position with Pato/Ibra/Cassano/Paloschi, and if Cassano leaves, then Robinho can move into that role. Overall, it seems to me that both Milan and Borriello do well with this deal.

Pato Is Brilliant

Thanks God! He wont arrive in Milan! Its good to get rid of him once and for all.

Good bye Borriello…


He should be sold for more than 10 millions.


Nice!!! 10m is a good amount! This should fund for Ganso and a good Playmaker (lcm)


i hope this report is true, for 10m, that’s a good deal so we can add 5m to get Samir Nasri
i really want that guy in Milan


imo, borriello is a good player but he cannot bring milan to the highest level. good bye, borri. wish u all the very best in the future.


grazie marco.. not a top quality striker but stepped up when we needed a lift 2 years ago.. some nice goals too.. we’ve made 14 million today =)

milan fun zuki

good deal. now try to get Ganso. and either nasari or Humsik.


ok ROMA thnks for this we r giving BONERA for free enjoy with him


Milan should put a sale – whoever buys Flamini, gets Bonera for free. lol


Good. He was never a great striker.

We can use all this money we made today towards Ganso.

da law

he was a scissor kick specialist.


I did like those goals he did like that… but he did miss many sitters.


Thank God!

… and please don’t come back!


I’m very happy for that. He’s a flop!! alwayz @a wrong position:-D


Decent player, could have been better if he wasn’t so lazy


in any parallel world, Borrielo could be great striker. but in our world, the absence of people who support him, like Leonardo and ronaldinho really affect his performances.
All the best for you Bori, would like to see you in Italy line up again


later borriello…


great news
