Suarez forgot to take some of his kit away from the Reds’ training ground before his blockbuster departure to the Camp Nou in a colossal £75m move, and Balotelli has swopped in on the left-overs.
The 24-year-old, apparently, dropped Barcelona’s star a phone-call asking if he could wear his old kit, left behind at their Melwood training camp, and the Uruguay international was more than happy to oblige.
The Mirror revealed a source said this about the Italian’s chat with Suarez, “Luis was in great form and only too happy to help when he received the call from Mario.”
