Brescia make last-ditch attempt to lure Mario Balotelli back to Italy as his hometown club increase offer to £2.5m-a-year deal after Flamengo officials meet with agent Mino Raiola
- Mario Balotelli has been offered a £2.5m-a-year deal by Serie A side Brescia
- The striker is in advanced talks with Flamengo but is considering Brescia’s offer
- The 28-year-old is currently without a club after being released by Marseille
Brescia have made a last-ditch attempt to sign Mario Balotelli.
The 28-year-old is currently without a club after being released by Marseille earlier this summer.
Flamengo officials flew to Europe on Tuesday to meet with the player’s representative Mino Raiola in a bid to close a deal by the end of this week.
Brescia have reportedly offered Mario Balotelli a £2.5m-a-year deal in late bid to sign him
But Balotelli’s hometown club Brescia have complicated matters by reportedly approaching with an offer.
CalcioMercato claim the newly-promoted Serie A side have offered Balotelli in the region of £1million-a-year deal with bonuses which could see his earnings rise to £2.5m.
It is understood the Italy international is considering the offer carefully despite having a more lucrative deal on the table by Flamengo.
The Italian is without a club after being released by Marseille and is also in talks with Flamengo
The Brazilian side are reportedly in talks with him over a sensational deal worth €15m (£13.8m) across two and a half years.
West Ham were also offered the chance to sign Balotelli last month after missing out on Maxi Gomez and Bournemouth’s Callum Wilson.
Balotelli made 15 appearances for Marseille while scoring eight times for the Ligue 1 side.
It came after a stint with Nice under Patrick Vieira where he scored 43 times in 76 games.
