Despite French reports of salary issues, Italian media insist Mario Balotelli will eventually sign for Olympique Marseille.
The 28-year-old is set to leave Nice, where he has been frozen out after the breakdown of his rapport with teammates and Coach Patrick Vieira.
His contract is due to expire in June anyway, so it could simply be terminated by mutual consent early.
L’Equipe reported today that the negotiations with Marseille were in trouble, as he requested a salary worth €5m per year.
