Mario Balotelli will not be able to make his Brescia debut until the end of September due to still serving a ban from his time in France.
Brescia are set to announce Balotelli’s arrival after Flamengo pulled out of the race yesterday.
However, a key detail that has gone amiss is the four-match suspension he incurred for a high tackle from behind during Olympique Marseille’s 1-0 win against Montpellier on May 24.
Despite picking up the ban in Ligue 1, it is effective in all League competitions, including Serie A.
Therefore, the 29-year-old will miss the Rondinelle’s openers against Cagliari, Milan, Bologna and Udinese.
He could then finally make his debut for the club against champions Juventus on September 29.
