This is the third Mario Balotelli rumour of day – and at least it’s slightly more believable than the Everton one.
According to French newspaper L’Equipe, Mino Raiola has offered his client to Ligue Un side FC Nantes.
They don’t go into much detail on the story, which makes us question its veracity – but what appears certain is that Raiola is getting desperate.
We started off the summer wondering whether AC Milan would offer him a permanent deal, but recent rumours have linked him with the Championship, the Swiss league, newly promoted Serie A clubs, and now Nantes – who are hardly a powerhouse of European football.
There is now just one week to go in the transfer window, and it’s probably fair to say Klopp and the Liverpool hierarchy are also getting a bit worried; the last thing we need is his trouble-causing antics to be influencing his teammates until January.
