Corriere dello Sport (Maida): Everything revolves around the round number 100 million. That is what the president of Istanbul Basaksehir believes Cengiz Ünder is worth. According to the most famous football agent, Mino Raiola, this is also the worth of Mario Balotelli, who Raiola claims to have offered to many Italian clubs.
“I spoke about Mario to Roma, Inter, Juventus and Napoli. Mario is still today the best Italian striker and among the top ten in the world. He grew up, matured and as a free transfer is a bargain. Milan? No, Mirabelli is there, I’m not at his level,” said Raiola, as he referenced an old controversy between the two.
In fact, from a strictly financial point of view, the operation would make sense for Roma: bringing in a 28-year-old attacker for free after two seasons in which he scored a total of 38 goals, is intriguing. Balotelli thinks that his time at Nice has come to an end and wants to get return and test himself at a big Italian club. He also wants prove that the words of Azzurri manager Di Biagio, who is preparing to bring him back to the national team after three and a half years, are true. However, it remains to be seen who really is willing to bet on Balotelli.
