It is becoming a will he, won’t he saga that looks set to blow Cesc Fabregas’ attempt out of the water and here at the Football Transfer Tavern news courtesy of the Daily Star has reached our ears that Mario Balotelli is claiming he will be returning to Italy soon.
The player has a list of indiscretions longer than Joey Barton and despite turning to the City chaplain his future still looks bleak. The latest deal that has been mooted also involves another highly rated striker who plays his trade in Serie A. Edinson Cavani could well be moving the other way in a deal that would rock the transfer market.
Despite Mancini claiming that he will give ‘another 100 chances’ to Mario Balotelli, the player’s time at the Etihad looks to be up. Balotelli wishes to return back to Italy and the most likely destination for the player would be his boyhood club, AC Milan.
Despite Silvo Berlusconi claiming on Italian radio station – Radio Mars that he ‘is not convinced’ by Balotelli ‘as a man’ one feels that a mutual understanding can be forged between the men.
Balotelli fits the model that AC are now trying to build – young, powerful and talented. Not to mention a brilliant understanding with Stephan El Shaarawy.
