Mario Balotelli set for a surprise Premier League return

Nice’s lethal striker Mario Balotelli is considering a return to the Premier League the following season.

Mario Balotelli’s agent Mino Raiola has confirmed that he is in talks with Premier League and Serie A clubs over a potential transfer.


The striker has enjoyed a nice season with Nice scoring 21 goals in all competitions.

27-years-old Balotelli will be available on a free agreement when his contract runs out in this summer, and super-agent Raiola insists suitors will be getting a £87million player for nothing.

He said: “Mario is ready to return. He has matured and is one of the top ten strikers in the world.

“In Italy, he is number one. He is worth €100m (£87m), but his contract is expiring, so he will be a bargain.

Author’s Take:

At his peak, Balotelli was one of the most fearsome strikers in the world. But with time, maybe overconfidence and bad habits led to his degradation as he became ill-reputed and inconsistent. But once claimed-to-be Ballon D’Or winner realized his wrongs and with the joining at Nice, we got a great show from the old lethal Balotelli. I feel that he should focus on establishing himself in whichever team he joins and prove his critics wrong.
