Liverpool in talks with Milan for Mario Balotelli

AC Milan are in talks with Liverpool over the transfer of controversial striker Mario Balotelli for £14m, according to reports in Italy.

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers sparked rumours of an impending deal ahead of their International Champions Cup match when he lavished praise on the fiery Italian in his press conference.

Now Sports Mediaset claim the player’s agent Mino Raiola is in talks with the Premier League club to discuss wages after his price tag has drastically reduced over the summer.

Milan CEO Adriano Galliani had said Balotelli was “99.999 per cent” likely to stay, but such proclamations have been shown to be empty on previous occasions.

The Rossoneri aim to use the money from the transfer and reinvest it in Torino winger Alessio Cerci, who is also a target for AS Monaco.

Balotelli has found life in Italy tougher than at Manchester City with him becoming embroiled in a raft of rows with the media who criticised his attitude and poor performances.

“I made a mistake bringing Mario back to Italy,” Raiola said after the World Cup exit.

    if balotelli can grow up then he would be incredible value, but if he keeps to his childish antics then your stuck with a player who doesn’t care on a fat wage who no one will buy from you.

    i don’t agree with people saying its a simmilar risk to suarez was. yeah loads of suspensions for luis, but when he played he always gave everything he had. mario not so much.

    M.Balotelli is a good player. I think LFC should sign him. He is fantastic. But his attitude must have to change.
