Balotelli open to Besiktas move

Balotelli doesn't like playing for Italy anymore?

Besiktas president Fikret Orman says Liverpool forward Mario Balotelli will be a perfect match for his side and they are desperate to sign the player.

The 25-year-old was deemed surplus to requirement by manager Jurgen Klopp after he returned from his loan spell at AC Milan and have asked him to find a new club.

And while the first team has travelled for a pre-season tour of US, the eccentric Italian has been training with the Reds youth side in a bid to maintain fitness.

However, Balotelli has caught a trouble figure in the past which has scared clubs away from making a bid for him but Besiktas president claims that the club is willing to take the Ghanaian born forward and he is also open to moving to Turkey.

“Mario Balotelli is the type of footballer that our fans can associate themselves with,” Orman told Fanatik. “I’m pretty sure he would attract great attention.

“To be fair, if he wasn’t deemed as a trouble-maker, he wouldn’t be rumoured to be joining us. But we can show some effort and create solutions for Balotelli’s infamous troubles. I think he can change with the attention and care he’ll receive in Turkey.

“In short, we want Mario Balotelli and he wants us too.”
