Nice set Balotelli price-tag

Mario Balotelli is on the January transfer market and Nice want somewhere between €1.5-3m, with Olympique Marseille again favourites.

The striker had undergone a medical with Marseille over the summer, but when the two clubs failed to agree terms, he refused to attend pre-season training.

Balo eventually relented and joined his squad for the new season, but is yet to score a single goal and had a series of bust-ups with new Coach Patrick Vieira.

After Vieira confirmed to the media that the club “must find a solution” for the Italy international, La Gazzetta dello Sport suggests a price-tag of €3m has been placed on his head.

However, they are prepared to accept as little as €1.5m to get his massive salary off the books.

Marseille are eager to give it another go in the January transfer window, but a return to Serie A could also be on the cards.
