Mario Balotelli has been offered to Napoli and Ajax, following news that the forward has turned down the advances of Besiktas. Believed to be on his way to the Liverpool exit door after failing to impress Reds manager Jurgen Klopp, the mercurial former AC Milan star has rejected an interesting proposal from the Super Lig side in light of Turkey’s fragile political state. Despite his client’s rejection of Besitkas, super-agent Mino Raiola is now touting Balotelli’s services around Europe in the hope that he can secure a move away from Anfield for the striker.
Inter are holding out for offers of more than €60million for Mauro Icardi, according to club president Erick Thohir. The club captain has been tipped to make a move to Napoli to replace new Juventus signing Gonzalo Higuain, with his wife and agent, Wanda Nara, claiming that Inter had failed to offer him a sufficiently improved contract. Thohir said this week that Inter had already rejected a bid from Maurizio Sarri's side for the striker, insisting that they had no desire to sell him to a Serie A rival.
