The Mirror has Liverpool fans looking up with interest here in the Football Transfer Tavern as it seems that Inter Milan boss Roberto Mancini will NOT be returning for one of his favourite players.
The former Manchester City manager knows Mario Balotelli well, having managed him in the past and we had thought that he may be willing to link up with the Reds forward once again.
Given how badly life on Merseyside has gone for the Italian international so far, we thought it could well be a serious option to consider.
Despite that, returning Inter boss Robert Mancini claimed: “Mario is happy at Liverpool, he has a great chance and was fortunate enough to go back to one of England’s biggest clubs.”
That has of course led some of our regulars to wonder just who would even consider bringing Balotelli to their club this winter – or at all – and we think that Liverpool could well be stuck with the 24-year-old forward for a considerable period yet
Liverpool fans. With each passing day do you believe the summer signing of Mario Balotelli was a complete and utter mistake? Let us know your thoughts below.
