Liverpool transfer news
According to Calcio Mercato, the 24-year-old remains something of a hate figure among Inter fans after he expressed his love for their bitter rivals AC Milan prior to joining Manchester City back in 2010.
Balotelli later went on to play for the red half of Milan, but left the club in a £16m move to Liverpool this summer, which has proven something of a disaster after his dreadful run of form for the club.
The striker, brought in as a replacement for Luis Suarez, has failed to score a single Premier League goal so far, and is now being tipped to leave Anfield when the transfer window re-opens this winter.
Still, Inter fans don’t want him back at the San Siro, while there are also concerns over his wage demands and long-term contract situation with Liverpool.
