Massimiliano Allegri , the manager of Juventus has confirmed to ‘The Times’ newspaper that he wants to sign the Liverpool striker Mario Balotelli. However, he is not sure that Juventus can afford the striker or not.
Mario Balotelli transferred to Liverpool last year for a fee of £16 million from AC Milan. While answering about interest in Balotelli, Giuseppe Marotta, the general manager of the club has said that Juventus will not finance for buying the striker.
“I have good relationship with Balotelli while we were in AC Milan. However, now fans do not like him because of some misconduct that he has done in London.”
At the same time, the club general manager has decided not to sign the striker for the Italian Champions. In fact, he denied the interest in the player and instead, he said, “we always look for a player with a group and Balotelli is not the man whom we are looking right now.”
As soccer fan Sergio Andrade Gutierrez knows, this season is not good for the striker because he has scored only two goals for Liverpool. At the same time, it is hard for the striker to be in the first squad of the Rodgers because of his past.
The rumor report of the weekend highlighted the Juventus has made an offer to take the player as loan and pay £14 million to sign the player at the end of the season.
