The big news on the transfer front this morning is that Liverpool, in their ongoing search for a first-rate striker, have reportedly entered talks with AC Milan over the signing of Mario Balotelli.

According to BBC Sport among several others, Liverpool are more than willing to meet Milan’s valuation of Balotelli (believed to be around €25million) and as such have opened negotiations with the Serie A side last night.

It’s believed that Liverpool’s opening bid of £17.5million was rejected by Milan and that a season-long loan offer has also been nixed as the Italian club were unwilling to agree to a “bad behaviour” cancellation clause that Liverpool were seeking to include in the small print.

What do you reckon Reds fans? Is Balo the man you need to fill your Suarez-shaped void, or is the last thing you need right now another distracting sideshow?

    NOPE.

  2. Maz Jones says:

    NO ! It’s BONY for me over this idiot every time. Falcoe and Cavani want to go elsewhere so LET THEM. BONY wants to come. Leave Balotelli in Italy. They wont agree to the Clause because they know he’s going to do something stupid again ! If he was that good they’d keep him !

    @Maz – Mario has performed well since moving to Italy and seems to have matured massively. For the right price, he is worth it. As a Newcastle fan, I would like us to go for him but with Mike Ashley holding the purse strings, it isn’t happening!

    WELL NOW WE’VE BOUGHT HIM I THINK HE’LL BE AN EXCELLENT REPLACEMENT AND NO BOTHER WHATSOEVER ETC
