There are some raised eyebrows here in the Football Transfer Tavern as Metro claim Mario Balotelli is set to be offered a huge sum of money to join Arsenal.
The AC Milan forward has been linked with a switch back to the Premier League all summer and with Arsene Wenger particularly keen on the player, we think that a move is on the cards.
A day after the Italian forward’s agent spoke about the chance of a move, claiming that ‘anything was possible,’ it now seems that Balotelli is set to be offered £180,000 per week by Wenger.
As one of our punters notes over a beer and a burger, that is a huge amount for any club, but for Arsenal to offer those kind of wages, we think that Wenger must want to tame Mario very badly indeed.
Balotelli is going to also cost a fair bit in terms of his transfer value, with AC Milan looking to get £27 million for him.
Arsenal fans. Would you offer this kind of money to the Italian or is it a disaster waiting to happen? Let us know your thoughts below.
