Mario Balotelli: Striker unwanted by Liverpool

Mario Balotelli’s agent insists it is “never too late” for the Liverpool striker as he looks to find a way out of Anfield.

Mino Raiola has been tasked with finding a destination for the 25-year-old Italy international, who has not travelled with the Reds’ squad to the United States after being told by manager Jurgen Klopp he has no future at the club.

“In life it’s never too late,” Raiola told Italian newspaper Corriere dello Sport.

“If you think Mario makes me despair, you’re wrong because his life has improved a lot and now he just needs the right opportunity.

“Where will he go? I’m saying nothing. Let’s see what happens. I won’t close the door on any solution. That goes for Mario and all my players.

“I listen to what is offered to me and then I decide along with them.”

Balotelli has returned to Anfield after a season long loan deal at AC Milan where he only managed one goal in 20 appearances.

His solitary season at Liverpool was also disappointing with only one goal in 16 Premier League appearances.

Reports have linked him with several teams around Europe, with a switch to Inter Milan and subsequent reunion with former boss Roberto Mancini on the cards.
