It seems that Mario Balotelli could finally be on his way out of Liverpool this month, after telling his followers on social media website Twitter to be patient, before adding that a ‘result will arrive soon’.
The Italian, who has not featured for the Reds since April’s defeat to Hull City, has been repeatedly told this summer that he is free to leave the club. He’s been made to train with the reserves while The Independent recently revealed the depths to which his problems have sunk since his move to Anfield.

Balotelli joined Liverpool from AC Milan last summer. However, he struggled to make an early impact as he was often forced to play as a lone striker, without the injured Daniel Sturridge there to play alongside him. The role did not suit him at all and the brooding 25-year-old eventually ended up with just four goals all year.
With Christian Benteke, Danny Ings and Divock Origi now members of Brendan Rodgers’ squad, it has become clear that he has no future on Merseyside, but until now we’ve been unable to find a taker for his services.
Thankfully, if this tweet is anything to go on, the situation could finally be resolved very soon:
Patience and result will arrive soon Belive me or not! What you guys doing?
