Will we be able to sell Mario Balotelli this summer?
A couple of weeks ago he was told by Klopp that he was surplus to requirements at Anfield this season (via Telegraph), but despite various unsubstantiated rumours this summer linking him to both Milan clubs, a switch to China, and a return to Serie A with minnows Crotone, his exit from Liverpool doesn’t appear to be any further forward.
“If you think Mario makes me despair, you’re wrong because his life has improved a lot and now he just needs the right opportunity,” he said.
“Of course, he also needs a bit of luck which he hasn’t had over the last two seasons, but I assure you he’s a great person, a lad with a big heart.”
He refused, however, to comment on what clubs (if any) were interested in bringing in the troublesome striker:
“Where will he go? I’m saying nothing. Let’s see what happens, I won’t close the door on any solution. That goes for Mario and all my players,” he stated.
“I listen to what is offered to me and then I decide along with them.”
Balotelli has only scored two league goals in the last two seasons combined which could explain the lack of interest in his services.
Where do you think he will be playing his football come September 1st? Let us know in the comments.
