Galatasaray make Balotelli offer?

Reports in the Turkish media are that Galatasaray have made an offer of €20m for Milan’s Mario Balotelli.

The forward scored 14 goals in 29 Serie A appearances for the Rossoneri this season but this did not stop some of his performances attracting criticism.

This has led him being linked with a move away from San Siro this summer, with Arsenal one of a number of clubs rumoured to be interested in securing his services.

Now, Turkish outlet Fanatik claims that the Istanbul club have joined the battle for Balotelli. Gala have apparently made a bid of €20m to take the Italy international striker to the Turk Telecom Arena, with the offer also including up to €7m of potential add-on fees.

Galatasaray are coached by Italian Roberto Mancini, who had a spell working with Balotelli while the pair were at Manchester City.
