Mario Balotelli could secure a move away from Liverpool, with lower-league pair Wolves and Port Vale interested.
Balotelli has been told to find a future away from Anfield this summer, with Reds manager Jurgen Klopp happy with his existing strikeforce.
Clubs from Turkey and Italy have expressed an interest in the striker, who received some advice from Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho earlier this week.
According to The Sun however, two more clubs are willing to take on the Italy international.
Wally Downes Jr writes that Mourinho has ‘recommended a drop out of the Premier League’ for the forward.
Wolves are the first club to be linked, with super-agent Jorge Mendes currently involved with the Championship club. Mendes, of course, is Mourinho’s agent.
League One side Port Vale are also rumoured to be interested, but only on the basis that Mourinho is friends with current manager Bruno Ribeiro.
The United boss considers his compatriot a ‘brother’, and Downes adds that ‘if the Special One really does have Balotelli’s ear,’ he could persuade him to drop down two divisions.
Spurious, to say the least.
