Speaking exclusively with RMC, agent Mino Raiola confirmed that he was in talks with Marseille for Mario Balotelli.
“I have a good relationship with Marseille. I know the sporting director very well and the president. We will see, it is too early. Mario is a player who creates emotion. He always gives 100%. This could marry up very well with the Marseille mentality. Marseille people are like that. They are passionate. Mario is passionate, it is like that. We will see.”
Marseille are understood to want to move quickly for the Italian, but Raiola and Balotelli want to wait until the beginning of next month to make a definitive decision on the Italian’s future.
As for contract negotiations, Balotelli and Marseille remain financially quite far apart.
Marseille are in talks with another attacker, whose name is not yet known.
