Milan: Alex exit, Balo mystery

Alex could reportedly reject a Milan renewal and return to Brazil, while there are conflicting reports about if Mario Balotelli will return to Liverpool.

Gazzetta dello Sport writes today that centre-back Alex was offered a new deal by the Rossoneri, with his current contract due to expire in June.

However, the outlet believes that the 33-year-old would prefer to turn down the offer and return to Brazil to see out his career.

As for Balotelli, Gazzetta has reported that the striker will return to Liverpool after his loan finishes at the end of the season.

The newspaper believes that Balo wants to stay at San Siro, but hasn’t done enough to convince the club to splash out on a permanent deal.

However, Corriere dello Sport thinks that the striker’s future could still be with the Rossoneri due to their interest in Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Corriere writes that Milan could decide to sign Balotelli in order to build a closer relationship with his agent Mino Raiola, who also represents Paris Saint-Germian’s Ibra.

It is believed that the Sweden international’s wife could decide his next destination, based on where she would like the family to settle.
