Balotelli heading for Galatasaray?

Mario Balotelli could leave Brescia in the January transfer window, with Galatasaray offering him a deal, according to reports.

The striker only joined his hometown club over the summer, as he was a free agent following the end of his experiences at Nice and Olympique Marseille.

However, he has struggled for goals and clashed with new coach Fabio Grosso, storming out of training early this week.

Although he returned to the group yesterday following a 10-minute meeting with President Massimo Cellino, the situation remains tense.

Dunga: 'Paqueta can't save Milan'

Former Brazil coach Dunga said Milan can’t expect 22-year-old Lucas Paqueta to “solve their problems on his own.”

Paqueta came to the Rossoneri in January this year and has since played 22 games in Serie A, scoring once since his €35m transfer from Flamengo.

Dunga is afraid the Italian giant have placed far too much importance on his performances since the 22-year-old arrived.

'Flamengo plan to keep Gabigol'

Flamengo Vice-President Marcos Braz has confirmed that his club will “make every effort” to keep Inter loanee Gabriel Barbosa beyond December 31.

Gabigol has exploded into life this calendar year, scoring 26 goals for Flamengo in the League and Copa Libertadores, including a brace against Gremio to fire his side into the Final of the latter.

The forward’s performances have also seen him return to the Brazil squad, but they have too been noticed by Inter fans, an increasing number of whom would like him to be given a second chance.

Flamengo agree Gabigol transfer?

Inter have reportedly agreed a deal to sell Gabriel ‘Gabigol’ Barbosa to Flamengo for €18m plus 20-25 per cent of his future transfer fee.

The 23-year-old was purchased from Santos in 2016 for €29.5m, but failed to make an impact in Serie A or during a loan spell at Benfica.

He has most definitely found his feet at Flamengo, where in 2019 he has scored 24 goals in 29 competitive games.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, the two clubs have now reached a basic agreement to make the move permanent for €18m.

Balotelli: 'Mother cried at Brescia move'

Mario Balotelli reveals his mother “cried” with happiness when he joined hometown club Brescia. “It was my Father’s dream to see me in this jersey.”

Although the striker was born in Palermo to Ghanaian parents, he moved to Brescia at the age of two and his adoptive family still lives there, although his Father died recently.

This is therefore a return to his hometown club, even though he started out in the youth academies of Lumezzane and then Inter, so never actually played for the Rondinelle.
