The Daily Mirror have the majority of our punters looking up with interest here in the Football Transfer Tavern as they seem to think that Liverpool forward Mario Balotelli will resist all attempts to get him to leave the club.
The reason behind this is apparently because of money – the forward is in line for a loyalty bonus at the end of the transfer window, that is six figures, should he still be at Anfield, and as one of our punters notes, given no decent clubs have come in for him, it is little wonder he may want to remain at Anfield and at least collect his cash.
The forward has been frozen out of the first team, but as our regulars note, we think that Brendan Rodgers will have to face up to the fact that he either writes off a huge amount of cash or tries to include the forward.
Our resident Liverpool fans here in the Transfer Tavern feel it is time to let the controversial Italian leave the club, with all of them admitting he has been nothing but a hindrance since joining!
Liverpool fans………. What do you make of this? Do you want to see Balotelli stay or leave Anfield? Let us know your thoughts and opinions in the comments below!
