Without a club since his eventful stint in Brescia, Mario Balotelli is always looking for a new challenge. But not just any one either. According to the Sun, the Italian striker would have refused to join Barnsley, resident of Championship and currently sixteenth in the standings.
Mino Raiola allegedly proposed the player to club bosses Chien Lee and Paul Conway, and the latter were said to be very enthusiastic about attracting the Italian striker, whose profile they know perfectly well since they were owners of Nice when Balotelli had signed on the Côte d’Azur in 2016. Not enough to seduce Super Mario, not very playful at the idea of scraping at the bottom of the English D2.
May he come back to France!
