Parma and Juve want Chelsea’s Borini

Posted on 16/10/2010


Parma and Juventus are reportedly trying to bring Chelsea’s Italian teenage talent Fabio Borini back to Serie A.

He grew up in the Bologna youth academy and left in 2007 for Stamford Bridge, before he could legally sign a professional contract.

However, the 19-year-old has struggled to find first team football in the Premier League and is looking for a return to Italy.

According to the Gazzetta dello Sport, Parma are the ideal candidates in Borini’s eyes, as they have already done the same service for Giuseppe Rossi in the past.

They are currently building their side around young talent such as Sebastian Giovinco and Alberto Paloschi.

Parma face competition from Juventus, who provide greater prestige and Europa League football.
