Sorry Liverpool fans, Mario's sticking around for another year it seems. At least that's what his agent is saying. The Italian striker has, for the most part, curbed his off-field misdemeanours yet his on-field performances are what has worried fans most.
Balotelli has been very poor. There's no denying it. Even those who wanted to see him do well can surely now admit that there's no saving his Liverpool career. However, no one has told Mino Raiola that.
The former Man City striker's agent has been speaking to Sky Sports and he has delivered the kind of news that Liverpool fans just didn't want to hear after a very disappointing season.
We have talks with Liverpool and he will stay. I spoke many times with the club and they were happy with his input as a professional.
Asked whether he thought Balotelli had got onboard with his manager and what he was asked to do, Raiola was similarly confident.
I think Mario did, I cannot talk for Brendan Rodgers. Obviously we're pretty confident it'll happen next year.
So Liverpool fans, at least you have that to look forward to.
