Borriello close to Palermo

Reports are that Roma’s Marco Borriello is edging closer to signing for Palermo, preferring them over Cesena.

The Giallorossi were seen to have originally found a deal with Cesena to loan out the 32 -year-old striker, with the Cavallucci reportedly  even willing to continue paying his current salary.

Borriello, however, is reported by as seeming to prefer the Sicilian capital to Cesena as a place to relaunch his career.

This decision from the player, it is believed, is based in part on how previous loan spells at Juventus, Genoa, and West Ham United saw him fail to impress.

Palermo are said to have offered to pay €800,000 thousand euros of Borriello’s €3.3m salary, whilst Roma are reportedly considering the bid.

The Giallorossi are understood as likely to ask for a further €600,000 to €800,000 to close out the deal with Palermo successfully.
