Fabio Borini’s agent is one talented individual, with his client set to join the revolution at one of Europe’s biggest and most prestigious clubs, AC Milan.
That is the same Fabio Borini who played for recently relegated, Sunderland; that is the same Fabio Borini who has never managed 10 league goals in a season; that is the same Fabio Borini who has 16 league goals in the last five seasons (just two in the Black Cats’ relegation campaign).
It’s quite amazing that Borini has somehow found himself in demand, continuously; to the untrained eye – let alone a trained one – the Italian offers absolutely nothing.
Borini is dining out on the fact he found the net six times in nine games for Swansea City, when they were in the Championship, whilst on loan from Chelsea.
Borini is distinctly average at best, and perhaps prior to AC Milan’s newfound financial power, Borini was the limited calibre of player the fallen giants could attract. However, signing the likes of Mateo Musacchio and Ricardo Rodriguez – players long linked with Europe’s biggest side – shows I Rossoneri are now shopping in the transfer market’s upper echelons, once again.
Remarkably, Borini has had a career featuring some of Europe’s most illustrious and successful clubs; the Italian has even managed to earn himself an Italian cap. He’s played on the same pitch as Francesco Totti on several occasions; he’s linked up with Luis Suarez.
Borini, if you’re reading: give your agent a pay rise.
