Roma now owns Fabio Borini
ROME, Italy ● AS Roma have bought the remaining 50 percent of former Chelsea striker Fabio Borini’s contract and now own the player outright, the club said on Saturday.
Roma formerly part-owned him with Serie A rivals Parma but an offer of 4.9 million euros (3.9 million pounds) in a sealed envelope bid proved enough to ensure that Borini would stay at the Stadio Olimpico.
There had been media speculation in Italy and England that the ex-Swansea City player could link up again with former coach Brendan Rodgers who is now in charge at Liverpool.
Borini, a member of the Italian squad at the European Championship, spent last season on loan at Roma.
