Manchester City's former manager Roberto Mancini lost patience with the Italy international and it is about time he returned to England. Mario Balotelli went to boyhood club AC Milan in what was seen as something of a homecoming, but it has not been quite as happy as expected.
There are certainly discipline concerns around the former Inter Milan forward, but there are no concerns about his talent. Arsenal are one of those that have been mentioned as possible suitors and the guidance of Arsene Wenger could coax the best out of him.
Just the presence of Balotelli would raise the Premier League's profile further, but a Balotelli that realises his vast talent could make it the competition that is hosting the world's best player.
