FC Crotone Want to Save Mario Balotelli’s Career

Serie A debutants FC Crotone say they want to save Mario Balotelli's career. Well. Alright, then. Don’t worry, Mario, FC Crotone is here to help. Also, don’t worry if you don’t know who or what FC Crotone is—they just got promoted to Serie A for the first time in their 106-year history. In any case, they’re a football club. From Italy’s south. They have a club crest with sharks on it. Also, they’d be more than happy to that Mario Balotelli on loan for the coming season, helping to—in their words—rehabilitate his career. With just one year left on his Liverpool contract, it...

Liverpool Have Held Paul Pogba Discussions Claims Agent

According to Paul Pogba's agent, Liverpool have held discussions about the rising star midfielder. But he's still going to end up at Real Madrid. According to Paul Pogba’s agent, Liverpool are one of a handful of clubs he has held discussions about his client with. With the player looking a near certainty to end up at Real Madrid, though, it’s probably best that nobody get too excited about a couple of conversations in the past tense. "It’s not a secret," Mino Raiola, also the agent for struggling Liverpool striker Mario Balotelli, who spent the past season on loan at AC Milan, told...

Mario Balotelli Reportedly Snubbed by Besiktas

Mario Balotelli's search for a permanent home away from Anfield looks set to continue. Mario Balotelli, what on earth has gone wrong? After Mino Raiola admitted that the player was offered to Besiktas and spoke of his confidence of a deal being struck yesterday, Besiktas sporting director Erdal Torunogullari today dismissed those claims. After two seasons of disappointment and stagnation for the talented 25-year-old, the search for a club where he can rediscover his form is set to continue. "We know Raiola well," Besiktas' sporting director said. "He’s even said Balotelli will go to...

Football transfer rumours: Robert Lewandowski to Liverpool?

Today’s fluff should have known betterYou might think that if ever there was a time for the grapevine to be given a rest it would be now, with Europe’s finest busy bellowing anthems and gesturing at the badge. Reader, you would be wrong. Behind the scenes, it’s all happening: preliminary talks behind fanzones, come-and-get-me-pleas from inside training camps, you name it.

Balotelli’s Agent “Quite Sure” Besiktas Transfer Will Happen

Mario Balotelli could end up in Turkey with his agent believing there’s a “100% chance” of a Besiktas deal going through. Having spent a disappointing season on Merseyside and a disappointing season back on loan with AC Milan, nobody really believes that Mario Balotelli has a Liverpool future. Yet nobody quite knows where he might reasonably end up next season if, as seems to be the case, none of the big Italian clubs want him. For many Liverpool fans, and perhaps even the club, the hope seemed to be that rumours of Chinese interest in the player might amount to a firm offer. So far,...

Balotelli to Report for Preseason: Fan(s) Rejoice(s)?

In unsurprising yet maybe surprising news, Italy's mercurial talent will report to preseason training and give Liverpool fans the world over Zapruder-esque training pictures to pore over for body language cues. T minus 23 days, folks: on July 2nd, Mario will report for duty.  With no sale having been agreed upon he has nowhere else to go. That being said, Klopp previously froze out everyone's favorite instagram star, Jose Enrique, and showed no compunction about dropping Benteke or consigning him to leading the line for all of da yutes. So one must ask, should he stay or should he go? For...

Cesare Prandelli Taking Mario Balotelli to Lazio?

If Cesare Prandelli becomes Lazio's manager, will he take Mario Balotelli with him to the Stadio Olimpico? Mario Balotelli is going to have to find a new club somewhere and somehow this summer. Although Balotelli has been a household name for quite some time, he turns 26 in August. Still young and good enough to have a decent spell of form for a few seasons at the right club, one where a manager or head coach sees him as an asset as opposed to a liability. If Lazio appoint Cesare Prandeli, who is believed to be in direct competition with Simone Inzaghi to be named as Stefano Pioli's...

AC Milan Decline Permanent Balotelli Deal

The Italian striker will go from surplus goods in Milan to surplus goods on Merseyside unless the Reds can find a buyer over the summer. The writing might have been on the wall for quite some time, but AC Milan have now made it official: they won't be seeking a permanent deal for Liverpool loanee Mario Balotelli. The 25-year-old striker only managed to find the back of the net once in 20 Serie A appearances (12 of which were as a substitute), as Milan struggled to a 7th place league finish. Despite Balotelli's public statements about wanting to stick around Milan, the club president made...
