In an interview with La Repubblica, Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti confirmed that he nearly signed Mario Balotelli for PSG after Euro 2012.
He had the following to say:
“He needs to find somewhere that he feels comfortable. He will find it sooner or later. I tried to get him to come when I was at PSG. He had just finished an excellent European Championship. Then, we had the option to sign Ibra, and we opted for the more assured option.”
