Speaking on the future of teammate Gonzalo Higuain, Milan winger Fabio Borini was interviewed by Sky Sport. The short-lived experiment is soon to come to a close, but the rossoneri must land their replacement before completing the deal officially: Piatek is the favorite currently over Batshuayi. Here were Borini's comments on the situation:
"It's how life is during the transfer market, you never know what is real, what is fake, and even in the dressing room you try not to talk about it to not invade someone's privacy. He is showing that he is a professional, he is training hard as he always does. Take the Supercoppa for instance: he was suffering from a fever and still he came on and looked to boost the squad. He has not thrown in the towel."
