Striker Returning to Liverpool to Stay

Paul Thomas

Following earlier rumours that Sunderland had made a formal offer for Fabio Borini, the player's agent has come out to rubbish them, insisting his client is returning to Liverpool to stay.

It's rare that a player's agent can be counted on for calming words, but Liverpool fans keeping an eye on Fabio Borini will have become used to level-headed updates from agent Marco De Marchi. With recent rumours suggesting Sunderland had offered around £10M for Borini but that Liverpool were holding out for more, there was speculation he could be on his way out. Not so, says De Marchi.

"Fabio goes back to Liverpool to stay there, as stated by the manager Rodgers a few weeks ago," he said this week. "So far, Liverpool have not received any communication regarding his transfer. I would not be surprised if there were other clubs who want him, because I consider him a complete striker. But for the moment, all I can say with certainty is that Fabio has returned to Liverpool to stay."

With all the attackers Liverpool have been linked to in recent weeks, from Alexis Sanchez to Xherdan Shaqiri to Lazar Markovic, the rumours linking Borini with a move away hadn't seemed especially far fetched. It appears, though, that the striker will at least be given the chance to prove himself in pre-season, and that while a move isn't impossible, neither club or player are actively pushing for one.
