Personal terms agreed to bring teenager to Old Trafford?
According to Italy’s famous Gazzetta dello Sport, Manchester United have agreed personal contract terms with 19-year-old Inter Milan wonderkid Mario Balotelli. It is believed United bid €30 (£25.5) Million for Balotelli, with president Massimo Moratti and agent Mino Raiola set to discuss the possible deal later today…
Gazzetta reports that Balotelli has agreed a pay-package with Old Trafford, and has his heart set on moving to the world’s largest club. It is believed that Sir Alex is ready to dish-out €30 (£25) Million for the Italian’s signature, with Manchester City still very interested. (Gazzetta dello Sport via United Latest)
So this source believes personal terms have been agreed with the teenage Italian starlet but now it seems that Manchester City could spoil the party with an increased bid for the Inter Milan man. The troubled forward seems desperate to leave the treble winners after falling out with all and sundry at the club and the ball appears to be in his court now in terms of where he would like to go.
A move to Juventus was also touted but I would imagine Mario wants a fresh challenge away from his homeland after all that has gone on. Clearly the Eastlnands outfit are able to offer a huge wage but one would imagine that the talented attacker may be more interested in being able to challenge for the Premier League and Champions League honours.
Sir Alex Ferguson has been reported as saying he is happy with his current squad but he has said similar things in the past only to make big name signings. Balotelli has a great deal of potential and offers an adaptable threat either out wide of as an out and out forward.
