Fiorentina are ready to welcome Mario Balotelli, claim reports, but he has to lower his €4m wage demands first.
Coach Vincenzo Montella spoke fondly of the striker this week and President Rocco Commisso has also hinted at interest.
Balo is a free agent after his Olympique Marseille contract expired, so the only issue would be personal terms.
According to La Repubblica, the Viola are eager to welcome SuperMario, but he must bring the €4m per year salary down first.
It’s suggested Fiorentina could have a valuable ally in Roberto Mancini, as the Italy Coach is also pushing Balotelli to accept a return to Serie A where he’ll get regular playing time.
Florence might be the chance he needs to get back into the Azzurri squad.
