Mario Balotelli’s agent says the striker “will play for Dortmund” after leaving Ligue 1 side Nice.
The controversial striker had a renaissance at Nice last season scoring 17 goals in 28 appearances after penning a 12-month deal and now there is believed to be serious interest from Borussia Dortmund.
New Dortmund coach Peter Bosz was met by Balotelli’s agent Mino Raiola this week and when asked whether he was in Germany discuss the 26-year-old Italian, Raiola replied: “Yes.”
“Balotelli will play for Dortmund,” Raiola told Goal.
Raiola recently claimed the German club and Marseille were interested in his client and he now claims a deal is as good as done.
Last month Cope Canarias reported that Gran Canaria-based club Las Palmas had made the free agent a 12-month contract offer, with the option for a further 12 months.
That does not appear to have appealed to Raiola and Balotelli, who apparently had a clause in his Liverpool contract which included a £1million bonus for not getting sent off three times in a season.
