Manchester City

Italy the only option for Balotelli

He is something of a cult hero here at the Football Transfer Tavern and we are always interested in a Mario Balotelli story and Gazzetta Dello Sport do not disappoint.

The Italian publication claims that the player has but one option this transfer window – a move to AC Milan. Of course the 22-year-old’s future has long been called into question with the striker not playing a competitive game since the 9th of December.

Gazzetta claim that Balotelli is wanted by the Milan club to start a new revolution after the inevitable sales of Alexandre Pato and Robinho, with a crop of younger players starting to feature more readily at the San Siro – namely Stephan El Shaarawy. Mario is never out of the headlines in England and simply getting away from the media glare on these shores could be a major reason for the youngster to move.

No one would deny that the Italian international is without talent; anyone who saw the Euros would attest to that, but after dropping down to 4th in the striking pecking order at City it may be time for Balotelli to move and reignite his career.

Gazzetta make the tequila reaching claim that with regards to the player leaving City, ‘the market is restricted to Italy. Spain, Germany – he was booed at every touch of the ball – and France are insensitive to his talent’
