Marseille have made two, strange bids for Mario Balotelli so far

L’Équipe report that Marseille have this summer made two bids for OGC Nice’s Italian forward Mario Balotelli, either verbally or via text message, both of which appear to have been quite creative.

The first offer: Marseille sign Mario Balotelli on a free transfer, but including a free loan for Rémy Cabella with an obligatory buy-out option for €5m – Nice were reportedly shocked by this attempt to lowball.

The second was hardly viewed in a better light by Les Aiglons: A €2.5m fee for Mario Balotelli with an loan with obligation to buy fee worth slightly more for Cabella.

Hence, no move on the deal at present.
