'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Homeward Bound Bianchi

After just one season at Manchester City, Italian striker Rolando Bianchi has decided to return to his native Italy after signing a five-year deal with Serie A side Torino.

Bianchi was one of Sven-Goran Eriksson's first signings but it was clear from an early stage the 25-year-old was going to struggle in the Premier League.

In January 2008, City allowed Rolando a four-month loan move to Lazio.

Although no figure has been released, it is thought Torino paid City around the 4m mark, less that half the amount Sven paid Reggina in July 2007.

Well, I'm glad that's over with. Woudl have been good to see how he operated with a strike partner instead of the solo role. But I wish hin well. Nice bloke by all accounts.

thats what we owed spread over 10. Did not get fair crack at it, because of the system SGE played, we needed a Drogba infront of Elano. Will miss the balaclave scarf Ron.

I'm with Buzz! Always had the feeling he could have made it with us. Never got a decent run in the team! Still, if he doesn't fit into Hughes' plans, it's best we cash in.
