Fiorentina consider Balotelli

Fiorentina have suggested that Mario Balotelli would interest them if he lowers his contract demands.

Balotelli is a free agent after leaving Olympique Marseille, and Gazzetta dello Sport reported on Friday that he was being considered by Fiorentina.

When asked about the Italy striker at a Press conference, Viola boss Vincenzo Montella replied: “He’s a player with important quality and great potential, some of which has been unfulfilled.

“But before saying he’s a Fiorentina player, there are so many arguments to be had.”

Joe Barone, right-hand man to new Fiorentina owner Rocco Commisso, was similarly cryptic about the 28-year-old.

“In the meantime, he wants so much money. Write that: ‘he wants so much money.’”
