Inter-owned striker Gabigol confirms he “speaks to Mario Balotelli practically ever day and I firmly hope he join us” at Flamengo.
Multiple sources in Italy claim Balo is on the verge of signing a contract with the Brazilians to December 2021.
He is a free agent, so only his entourage needs to work out the details with Flamengo.
“I speak to Balotelli practically ever day and we chat about everything, not just football,” Gabigol told La Gazzetta dello Sport.
“I really hope that he can join this team. He wants to do it and I am cheering his own. I’d love for him to become one of us.
“It’s be spectacular, incredible to have Balotelli in Brazil. Players like Filipe Luis and Rafinha want to come here, even though they’ve won and played so much in Europe.”
