After selling Luis Suarez, Liverpool reinforced their squad to improve depth as well as quality in all departments.
However, the strikeforce still needed more strength with only Lambert coming in. Reds have finally solved that dilemma as well.
Two talented stars in Radamel Falcao and Mario Balotelli were linked with move to Anfield and it will be the Italian to join merseyside.
Reports have confirmed that former Manchester City star Mario Balotelli’s move to Liverpool is a done deal and the player will join Anfield club for just €21m. Expect the personal terms and medical to be completed today.
The mighty Rossoneri, AC Milan have also confirmed that Balotelli has left the club:
“Mario Balotelli drove out of Milanello at 13.30 after saying good-bye to his team-mates and the club’s press staff.”
The 24 year old star has all the talent to be a hit with Liverpool and if Brendan Rodgers can manage Mario well to get the best out of him then the Reds will be a major force in all competitions this season.
Balotelli left City to join AC Milan in 2013 January. Since then he has been prolfiic as he scored 30 goals and provided 12 assists in 54 appearances for the Serie A side.
There is no doubt that mario’s attitude and inconsistency are the major concerns which was not the case with Suarez. Even when Uruguayan was controversial, he used to give his 100% to win every game.
Will his signing excite Liverpool fans, definite yes. Will he be a hit with the Reds, we shall see.
