Marco Borriello was sensationally dropped by Genoa due to “disciplinary reasons,” opening the door for a January move to Inter.
The well-travelled striker was meant to face the Nerazzurri at San Siro on Saturday, which ended 1-1, but was not even on the bench after reports of a blazing row with director Rino Foschi.
The reasons behind the argument are unclear, amid reports of turning up late to training or the fact he’s still commuting from outside Genoa.
Foschi would only reveal Borriello was dropped for “disciplinary reasons” and did not elaborate.
La Gazzetta dello Sport today suggests that Borriello could be a January transfer window reinforcement for Inter.
Andrea Stramaccioni is looking for someone who can be back-up to Diego Milito, so the tall former Milan, Roma and Juventus striker would fit the bill.
He could make the move in exchange for defender Matias Silvestre, although the Argentine’s €2m per season wages might prove a stumbling block for Genoa.
