Balotelli in Flamengo talks

Italy striker Mario Balotelli is in talks with Flamengo over a surprise move to the Brazilian side.

Balotelli is currently a free agent after being released by Olympique Marseille and had been linked with moves back to Serie A.

However, Gianluca Di Marzio reports negotiations are ongoing to take the 28-year-old to Flamengo.

The Rubro-Negro already have Inter forward Gabriel Barbosa and former Roma midfielder Gerson on their books.

Balotelli may also see himself as an heir of sorts to Adriano, the ex-Nerazzurri hitman who began his career with the Rio de Janeiro outfit and played for them later in his career.
