Mino Raiola: 'English, Italian clubs after Mario Balotelli'

Raiola: 'English clubs after Balotelli'

Nice striker Mario Balotelli has attracted interest from Juventus, Inter Milan, Napoli and Roma, as well as teams in England, according to agent Mino Raiola.

Agent Mino Raiola has revealed that a number of clubs in England and Italy are interested in signing striker Mario Balotelli from Nice.

The 27-year-old has revived his career on the French Riviera, finding the net a combined 28 times in 42 Ligue 1 appearances since the start of last season.

Balotelli was recently linked with a return to AC Milan, but Raiola has ruled out the Italy international rejoining his former club.

Plenty of other options remain on the table for the former Liverpool and Manchester City ace, however, as he will be available to purchase on a free contract by the time the summer transfer window opens for business.

"Mario is ready to return," Raiola told Rai Sport. "He has matured and is one of the top 10 strikers in the world and in Italy, he in number one.

"He is worth €100m but is available for free so therefore he's a bargain. I'm already talking to clubs from England and I have also spoken to Juventus, Roma, Napoli and Inter. AC Milan? No, because there is [Massimo] Mirabelli and I do not see eye to eye with him."

Balotelli has also previous taken in spells with Lumezzane and Inter, last competing in Italian football two years ago.
