So, it looks like we’ve managed to rid ourselves of one unwanted striker in the shape of Christian Benteke – but we’ve still got another one at the club.
That person is, of course, Mario Balotelli.
However, it would only be a loan move, and Raiola is trying to persuade us to pay a significant chunk of his wages to help smooth the deal.
Balotelli – who has only scored two league goals in the last two seasons combined – has been linked with a host of Serie A minnows, Sampdoria, Ajax, Bologna, Besiktas, and Championship side Wolves this summer, but none of them have been forthcoming with a concrete offer.
Would you let me go on loan even if it costs us money? Let us know in the comments below…
