Raiola: 'Balotelli in England talks'

Nice star Mario Balotelli “already had talks with English clubs, but it’s too early to say,” confirmed agent Mino Raiola.

The striker has rediscovered his form in France after poor spells at Milan and Liverpool, but the 26-year-old could be heading back to England.

“We've already had talks with English clubs, but it's really too early to say. We want to keep it day-by-day with Mario,” Raiola told Talksport.

“For Mario I always knew it [his return to form] will come. He was in his last year at Liverpool and he was very stable and not so emotional any more.

“I still think it's a shame that Jurgen Klopp didn't give him a fair chance, but Mario is proving to himself, more than to others, what he can do. 

“It's his career - I think he understands a lot of things and he knows what he did as a mistake in the past. But it's useless to look back, it's only useful to look forward.”

Balotelli has scored 10 goals in 13 competitive games for Nice this season, including eight in eight Ligue 1 matches.
