This is after the Daily Mail revealed that Mario Balotelli’s agent said that his client would not be returning to Italy, despite his appalling start to life at Liverpool.
His agent has branded potential moves to Inter Milan as impossible and has ruled out a move to his homeland completely.
With his former coach Roberto Mancini becoming Inter Milan’s new manager, many believed the former Manchester City boss would hand the 24-year-old a lifeline.
But it is no shock that Mancini is not interested, with Balotelli only finding the back of the net twice since his £16m move to the Reds.
His agent, Mino Raiola, was quick to end any sort of speculation and says that the priority for his striker is to overcome his current injury.
He said: “A return to Inter is impossible. Not for Mancini, but for other reasons of which it isn’t worth talking about.’
“Even Naples. Mario does not return in Italy.’
Raiola added: “He lacks the goals, doesn’t run well but it is a time that must pass. He now has this injury and we hope to have it resolved as soon as possible.
“The relationship with the team? It is perfect, the English journalists must not be part of his life.”
Liverpool fans. He is still only 24 and has a long career ahead of him, do you think he will stay at Anfield for a long time or will he not last longer than two years? Let us know your thoughts below.
