Balotelli’s agent plays down talk of striker leaving Liverpool for Juventus

Balotelli’s agent has rejected any talk of the loner striker leaving Anfield to return to Italy this month.

 

Juventus boss Allegri confirmed on Monday that he is interested in signing the Italian who has not impressed much since his move to Anfield.

 

According to a report by The Times and Tuttosport, Italian club Juventus are keen to sign Mario Balotelli in spite of the Italian’s awful form in the Premier League where he has failed to score a single goal for Liverpool.

Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri insists Mario Balotelli is among the best players in the world.

 

Massimilian Allegri was reported saying. “We would like to recruit him, but we do not know if it is possible. Mario had a good season with me (at AC Milan).Unfortunately he’s built up a character outside of the world of football and everyone talks about what he does off the pitch. All coaches love to lead the best players.”

 

But  Mario’s agent has completely denied his link back to Italy after several reports suggested that he can move to Juventus on a loan deal which will be made permanent in summer for £14million.

 

Mino Raiola, Balotelli’s agent has rejected any talks linking the former City striker, who still has to open his account and hasn’t scored a single goal in the Premier League since his arrival from AC Milan in August to a move back to Italy.

The Italian hasn't scored a single goal for the Reds in the Premier League.

 

He told Calciomercato: “Balotelli is not doing well, but must remain calm and work hard. Nobody questions his qualities and I am not worried.

 

“Now you do not hear talk of his private life and this is already a big improvement.

 

“We forget that he had an injury that kept him still for long and until he’s 100 per cent, we will not be able to judge. It’s not easy to go abroad and fit in a sports project, you need time.”
