As talks with Olympique Marseille break down, it’s rumoured Mario Balotelli has been offered to Parma, Sampdoria, Bologna and Sassuolo.
The striker has been frozen out at Nice after a series of rows with Coach Patrick Vieira and is ready to terminate his contract six months early by mutual consent.
He already had a medical at Marseille over the summer before the two clubs failed to agree a transfer fee.
A reunion was widely expected, but now Rai Sport and Tuttosport suggest the situation has changed due to Marseille’s disastrous form.
Instead, a return to Serie A is on the cards, with agent Mino Raiola allegedly offering Balo’s services to mid-table Parma, Samp and Sassuolo, as well as relegation strugglers Bologna.
