Paris Saint-Germain are said to be looking into the possibility of buying volatile Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli, this despite the Citizens’ keen interest in holding onto their enigmatic starlet.
Still only 21, Balotelli has become one of the most discussed players in the world, if not for his performances on the field then his shenanigans off it. That sort of behaviour has landed the Italian in hot water with City manager Roberto Mancini time and time again, who blew his lid after Balotelli’s sending off against Arsenal last season.
The Italian manager has cooled down significantly since, and now is keen on keeping the highly-rated at the Etihad Stadium. However, with the reigning Premier League champions now favourites to sign wantaway Arsenal skipper Robin van Persie and needing to make a couple of sales to balance the books and fall under the UEFA Financial Fair Play rules, the youngster’s sale to can not be discounted.
PSG manager Carlo Ancelotti is looking to pounce on this one-off chance to grab Balotelli, and is reportedly considering a £30 million bid for the mercurial frontman.
AC Milan are also said to be keen on bringing the former Inter player back to the San Siro, but are not expected to pay such a premium price for a player who still has not proven his talent on a consistent basis.
