Homeward Bound Bianchi

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.
