Disbelief is probably the best word to describe the reaction to AC Milan signing Fabio Borini from Sunderland.

Reports from Italy suggesting AC Milan are on the verge of signing Fabio Borini from Sunderland has sent Twitter into meltdown.

According to Sky Sports Italia, the Serie A club have agreed a £5.3m fee to bring Borini to the San Siro and the forward will complete a medical on Thursday (June 29).

The 26-year-old was relegated with the Black Cats in 2016/17 after scoring just two goals in 24 Premier League matches.

After impressing on loan at the Stadium of Light from Liverpool in 2013/14 – when the Italian scored four times in the last five games to help keep the club up – he was signed permanently by the North East outfit in 2015.

In total Borini has scored 17 goals in 93 appearances for Sunderland; his fifth senior side in a varied career that has also seen him play for Chelsea, AS Roma and the Reds.

With it now seeming the attacker is about to add Milan to an already impressive CV, social media is wondering just how this move happened.
