Genoa agree Bertolacci loan

Andrea Bertolacci is set for a return to his old club Genoa on loan from Milan, two years after leaving Marassi.

The 26-year-old has struggled with the Rossoneri due to injuries, poor form and tactical considerations.

He made the transfer for €20m in the summer of 2015, as Roma first bought out the remaining half of his contract for €8.5m and then immediately sold him on to Milan.

Bertolacci is now going back to base with a season-long loan in the Grifone jersey, despite links to Fiorentina.

Sky Sport Italia and Sportitalia both claim it is a dry loan, whereas La Gazzetta dello Sport believe Genoa will pay a small sum to ‘borrow’ the player.

Last season, Bertolacci had 18 competitive appearances, scoring one goal with one assist.
