Stoke City pulled off the signing off Bojan last summer, they agreed a fee for Xherdan Shaqiri yesterday and they now want Mario Balotelli for £14m!
Well – that’s until you root into the rumours a little more, which actually seem complete and utter nonsense.
A reddit user spotted this made up tweet and decided to share it everywhere…

Before a Liverpool Twitter acccount with 58.5k followers tweeted this, and set the internet into overdrive…
Stoke City are looking at Mario Balotelli, and could make a bid of £14m. They will continue paying the same wages. [Guardian] — LFC Fans Corner (@LFCFansCorner) July 2, 2015
Then – this happened! Please, Reds – take this with a pinch of salt. As far as we can tell, it’s utter garbage. We just found it pretty entertaining.
Balotelli to Stoke. A rumour made entirely up on Reddit

Who has started the Balotelli to Stoke rumour? HAHAHA

Interested to see how will Balotelli do at Stoke, if he does move there. Seems like a good transfer.
