Swiss Super League club FC Sion have confirmed that they are in talks to sign Mario Balotelli from Liverpool on a loan basis. The news was confirmed by Sion’s chairman.

The Italy international has fallen out of favour with Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp and the German has publicly said that 26-year old does not feature in his plans for the new season and the Reds are desperate to off-load the 26-year old.

The former Milan and Manchester City player has been linked with a return to Italy throughout the summer, namely Chievo and Sassuolo, but reports suggest that his agent Mino Raiola  wants him to stay in England for financial benefits.

Balotelli  is infamous for his antics both on and off the pitch and as a result, he has been rejected by a host of European clubs but now a move to Switzerland could be in the offing.

“I can confirm we’re discussing a possible loan of Balotelli,” Christian Constantin told “We’re progressing but I can’t say yet if the transfer will be successful or not.”

A few days ago the marksman reportedly met newly-appointed Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho in order to seek advice on his troubled career and the Portuguese reportedly told him to join Championship side Wolverhampton in order to revive his career.

Meanwhile, he was also linked with Liverpool’s bitter rivals-Everton and Manchester United in the past couple of days.

Reports in Italy on Wednesday claimed that the striker wanted a reunion with former Inter manager  Mourinho at Old Trafford, with his agent looking at cutting another deal with the club. But a move to Old Trafford looks highly improbable as Balotelli is no more in the form that made him one of the finest youngsters in Europe a few years ago and so the best scenario for him would be to move to a less competitive league and rescue his career.

    An avid sports lover, i always wanted to pursue a career in football. But just like the millions out there i did not put in the hard work needed to achieve my dream and now i have become a fan instead of the player. Anyway, writing for sports has kept me closer to this field. One more thing, yours sincerely is a die-hard Liverpool fan. You will never walk alone.
