Having scored a good number of goals and helped Nice finish third in the Ligue 1, it’s now time to arrange his immediate future, which, according to his agent, should be at the same club he just spent a very successful season.
I will meet with Nice. It’s right if he stays with Favre
Mino Raiola, Mario Balotelli’s agent told the Gazzetta dello Sport.
The fact that he mentioned the name of Lucien Favre, shows how important he considers for Balotelli to be in a team where he gets along with the coach, who gets motivated enough to perform at his best, receiving the… special treatment he seems to need.
Raiola was asked about the national team of Italy as well, and how possible it is to see his client back there.
If he scores 20 goals before the World Cup, he deserves to go, but I don’t know what’s going through Gian Piero Ventura’s head
he said, talking about the coach of the Squadra Azzurra.
Balotelli joined Nice last summer signing just an one-year contract, which expires in a few days. He has been linked with higher profile clubs, like Borussia Dortmund, but judging by his agent’s statements, he would be perfectly ok with staying at Nice.
