FABIO BORINI and Roberto Soldado won’t leave their clubs on loan according to reports.
Milan are looking for a striker and yesterday the Milan Channel announced that the Rossoneri have narrowed down the list of possible strikers and it now includes Chelsea’s Fernando Torres, Liverpool’s Fabio Borini, Tottenham’s Roberto Soldado and Fulham’s Konstantinos Mitroglou.
The Diavolo sold Mario Balotelli for €20 million but as suggested by il Corriere della Sera, not all of the money will be reinvested in the market and will instead to be used to cover the deficit created by the Milan’s Champions League absence. The intention is to sign a striker on a loan deal but that seems to complicate the things for Milan.
Fernando Torres isn’t convinced by the solution of a loan and wants a three year deal (more updates are expected today) and the alternative is Borini. According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Borini’s agent Marco De Marchi has told Milan the player is willing to make the move but Liverpool want to sell the player and wouldn’t want to loan him out. Soldado is next in line but CorSera claims that Tottenham have rejected Milan’s loan approach and demand €12m or De Sciglio for the striker.
Mitroglou is an unlikely option. His agent said that “My client will leave Fulham, but he won’t join Milan” while Adriano Galliani said “I don’t think so” when asked if the Greek would arrive. Mattia Destro and Jackson Martinez are too expensive.
