Nigerian fans of the English Premier League can expect to see the possible return of volatile Italian striker Mario Balotelli to a club they support in the league next season.
The former Manchester City and Liverpool striker is out of contract in the summer after two fruitful seasons with French club Nice and could return to England on a “bargain” free transfer according to his agent.
“Mario is ready to return, he has matured into one of the top 10 strikers in the world,” said the agent who also reportedly represents Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Paul Pogba.
“In Italy he’s number one. He’s worth €100million (£88m), but he’s on a free transfer and is therefore a bargain. I’m negotiating with many clubs in England and in Italy. I’ve spoken with Juventus, Roma, Napoli and Inter.”
The 27 year old Balotelli, who recently condemned Italy's first Black senator according to the BBC, has scored 29 goals in 43 appearances for Nice across 2 seasons thus far.
