Italian demands too much money, and will likely stay on Merseyside…
Liverpool’s proposed £10m sale of Italian forward Fabio Borini to newly promoted Premier League side QPR is off, due to the player’s huge contract demands, the Daily Mail reports.
The two clubs had agreed a relatively sizeable fee, but despite contract negotiations taking place today, the two parties were unable to agree a contract.
Borini was expected to jump at the chance to leave Anfield, as he’s way down Brendan Rodgers’ pecking order. The likes of Daniel Sturridge, Mario Balotelli and new signing Rickie Lambert are all favoured ahead of the 24-year-old.
Despite the fact his playing time will likely be very limited, it appears now that Borini will stay at Liverpool and compete for as many appearances as possible.
The forward can be used on the right-wing as well as up top, due to his excellent work-rate. What Borini lacks in raw pace and technical ability, he makes up for in sheer determination and industry.
Last term, Borini spent the campaign on loan at Sunderland, scoring a goal in the League Cup final, as well as important strikes against Newcastle and Chelsea.
