Cagliari signing Borriello: I've had offers from Man Utd, Real Madrid

Former AC Milan and Roma striker Marco Borriello has revealed he had offers from Manchester United and Real Madrid during his career.

Cagliari became Borriello's 14th club last month.

“I could've gone to Real Madrid or Manchester United, but I chose Italy and stayed there with a big club," the veteran told Libero.

“I scored 17 goals in my first season, then came a new sporting director without getting to know me and said 'this is a problem', and [the following] mid-season, I found myself somewhere else."
