Ex-Manchester City and Liverpool attacker set to join a club after being without a team during the pandemic.
Former Manchester City and Liverpool frontman Mario Balotelli admitted that he will sign for a new club in the upcoming weeks.
Balotelli shifted to the free agency hoard after his release by Brescia at the end of the 2019-20 season.
Nonetheless, the 30-year-old did not attend the training session after the coronavirus lockdown. Consequently, he received tremendous criticism from the people for lack of discipline.
Brescia head coach Diego Lopez told Corriere Della Sera in June: “There’s only one truth here: the team has followed one path, Mario has followed another. I thought he could give so much, playing in the city of his birthplace.
“He had a lot to give but he had to do more, much more. These are the facts. Therefore, it’s normal that there’s a disappointment.
“I spent a lot of time on him. He didn’t even show up on Zoom during the quarantine.”
Genoa desired to sign Balotelli during the summer transfer window. Although, the Serie A club did not come to a conclusion.
A fresh start.
The Italy international is connected to a move to MLS. Though, now the striker reveals that he knows where to go next.
During a live chat with his brother Enock on a reality show, Balotelli answered some questions about his future.
The ex-City star said: “I still don’t play, in a few weeks I’ll sign, don’t worry.”
Balotelli moved to Brescia as a free agent in August 2019. Subsequently, he netted five goals for his childhood club in 19 outings.
He played for Marseille for a short-time after ending terms with Nice. The Italian regained some reputation after a bad campaign in Liverpool.
To everyone’s surprise, Balotelli only scored four goals at Anfield from 2014 to 2016. He did not replace the talisman, Luis Suarez, after his move to Barcelona.
The ex-Italy player moved to San Siro in 2013 from City. And, he showed his talent for Milan for quite some time.
Additionally, Balotelli won the Premier League title at Etihad Stadium. Although, he did not keep up with his previous performance for Inter. The Serie A club sold him to Manchester City for €22 million.
