Mario Balotelli has finally found a new club after leaving Liverpool

It’s here, Liverpool fans. The day Mario Balotelli finally sends goodbye.

After a dismal two years as a Liverpool player, with one season spent on loan at AC Milan, the Italian has found a new club.

Twenty-eight appearances, four goals. It’s fair to say he won’t go down a Liverpool legend.

The task of trying to reignite a stalling career now falls to Nice, who expect negotiations to be complete on Wednesday morning, according to the Mirror.

Talks were held in the French city on Tuesday, although the latest from Balotelli’s agent, Mino Raiola, was that “there’s no agreement between the clubs and no medical [on Tuesday].”

Farewell dinner

Still, it seems a formality. The 26-year-old, who was brought to Liverpool by Brendan Rodgers for £16 million in 2014, held a dinner party for friends in Manchester on Monday night in what the Daily Mail believe was a farewell meal.

Nice's innovative approach

Balotelli might just get along with Nice president Jean-Pierre Rivere, who proved himself to be as equally distinctive as the striker by asking for his phone number in a press conference on Saturday.

“Do you have Balotelli’s number? Call him and tell him we need a striker in Nice,” Rivere told reporters after Nice’s 1-1 draw with Lille.

Liverpool fans react

Liverpool fans are delighted to finally see the back of Balotelli.

Outgoings expected

Balotelli’s departure might not be the only business Liverpool conduct on deadline day. Sadly, though, the only door that is expected to be used is the one that goes out.

Boss Jurgen Klopp is reportedly confident that Lazar Markovic will complete a switch to Sporting Lisbon before the 11pm deadline. Liverpool are seeking £15m for the winger, who spent last season out on loan at Fenerbahce, and would agree to another loan deal provided Sporting commit to possibly making the transfer permanent at the end of the season.

Luis Alberto and Andre Wisdom could join Lazio and Red Bull Salzburg, and Klopp is hoping that Mamadou Sakho agrees to leave on loan.

According to BBC Sport, the French defender, who has fallen out with Klopp, has turned down moves to West Brom and Stoke.

A source told the Mirror that any arrivals on deadline day are “unlikely”.
