Balotelli to Liverpool for £14m?

Sport Mediaset claim Milan are in talks with Liverpool to sell Mario Balotelli for just £14.3m.

The rumours of Liverpool interest went into overdrive ahead of their International Champions Cup match when Brendan Rodgers praised Balo in his Press conference.

Now Italian media maintain agent Mino Raiola is already in contact with the Premier League club to discuss wages.

Milan CEO Adriano Galliani had said Balotelli was “99.999 per cent” likely to stay, but this phrase has also been used before other transfers.

According to Sport Mediaset, Balo’s price-tag has plummeted over the summer to just €18m (£14.3m).

The Rossoneri aim to use that money and reinvest it in Torino winger Alessio Cerci, who is also a target for AS Monaco.

Balotelli has found life in Italy even tougher than at Manchester City with a more unforgiving Press.

“I made a mistake bringing Mario back to Italy,” said agent Raiola after the World Cup fall-out, when Balotelli’s attitude and abilities were under attack.
