“Mario Balotelli costs €10m, but with a discount we await him with open arms,” said Sampdoria President Massimo Ferrero.
The Blucerchiati have repeatedly hinted at interest in Balotelli and Ferrero did so again at the presentation of the 2015-16 Serie A fixture list.
“Balotelli costs €10m, but with a discount we await him with open arms.”
This statement suggests Liverpool would be prepared to release SuperMario for just €10m (£7.1m).
That would be half of what the Reds paid Milan for him only a year ago.
