Mario Balotelli: Being heavily linked with a return to English football

The former Manchester City striker is being strongly linked with a return to English football at Emirates Stadium.

Struggles in Milan, which have seen the Rossoneri fail to secure European qualification for 2014/15, have sparked rumours that an exit could be imminent.

Arsenal are known to be in the market for a new frontman and would welcome a proven Premier League performer such as Balotelli.

Milan have also kept the exit door open, with managing director Barbara Berlusconi announcing that ‘nobody is irreplaceable’.

Balotelli’s representative Mino Raiola has responded to those comments by revealing that his client wants to be somewhere ‘he is loved’, but he has also reiterated that no discussions have been held regarding the 23-year-old’s future with the Milan board or Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger.

He told RaiUno: “Maybe it was a mistake to bring Mario back to Italy.

“For him it is essential to go where he is loved, and at AC Milan some people love him and some do not.

“Barbara Berlusconi is right to say that no-one is irreplaceable, but so far the club have always told me that Balotelli is not for sale.

“If they do not want to keep him, they have to call me and I’m ready to meet and discuss things with them.

“I did not go to Brazil for any talks and I have never met Wenger.”

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
