Third-tier Como in for Balotelli

Serie C side Como have made an audacious attempt to sign Brescia outcast Mario Balotelli.

Balotelli’s Brescia career is over, with the two currently involved in a contract wrangle as the club looks to get him off their wage bill.

Now, Sky Sport Italia reports the striker could join Como, who finished 13th in Serie C Group A last season but have big ambitions for the future under their Indonesian owners.

The broadcaster goes as far as stating talks have already taken place between them and the 29-year-old and that they are prepared to match his demands.

‘SuperMario’ scored five goals in 19 games for Brescia before lockdown and has been excluded from their squad since Serie A resumed.

Just a week ago, the Rondinelle announced the Italy international was 8kg overweight.
