Seven months after our original link in the media with the player, we are again linked with a move for Mario Balotelli.
A loan offer of €2m is said to have been made to Liverpool FC with the option of purchasing for €16m. I assume the club must be unaware that LFC have set an asking price of £7m and this is the price that the other interested Italian parties are considering!
When given the chance for a run of games and mpre importantly when he can be bothered – Balotelli can be up there with some of the best strikers in Europe. His Serie A and Euro 2012 form displays what he can do. But the player is a risk, and quite frankly until we sort out our defence he’s a risk we don’t need to be taking right now.
