Old Trafford boss lines up move for San Siro goalscorer.
Manchester United are reportedly considering a shock move for AC Milan forward Marco Borriello. Sir Alex Ferguson is a big admirer of in form Italian international and is looking for an effective partner for Wayne Rooney and has earmarked the big powerful San Siro man as a potential target.
The £18m rated Naples born striker has been a member of the Rossoneri since 2002 but has spent loan spells at a number of Serie A sides during that spell but a successful stint at Genoa, where he netted 19 goals, led to his return to the AC Milan fold and he hasn’t looked back since.
This season Leonardo has put a lot of faith in the 27 year old and he has netted 14 goals this term, making him the club’s top marksman. His form this term has led to his inclusion in Marcello Lippi’s 30 man provisional World Cup squad.
Ferguson may well feel that Borriello’s physical attributes would lend themselves to a role in the Premier League and could well make him a perfect foil for England goal machine Rooney.
