Parma sporting director Daniele Faggiano confirms he met Mario Balotelli’s agent but “we need to be careful with the budget”.
The striker was linked with a move to the Ducali this summer, but he still has a year left on his deal with Nice, who will only let him leave for €10m.
Agent Mino Raiola previously claimed Super Mario would be available on a free transfer, which has prompted some bad blood with Les Aiglons.
“I met the agent of several players, including Balotelli,” Faggiano told ParmaLive.
“Balotelli is a player who is not easy to sign, we need to be careful with the budget.”
Another Raiola client is Juventus talent Moise Kean…
“He’ll be the player of the future, but he’s a very young lad who earns a lot of money.”
