What do you do when no one wants you?
What a difference a year makes. Mario Balotelli arrived at Anfield last August, full of promise and to a hero’s welcome on a £16 million deal from AC Milan.
Now Liverpool are keen to entertain offers from other clubs after a less than stellar season from the Italian, who scored just four goals in 28 appearances.
But his chances for a summer transfer took a serious blow after Serie A club Sampdoria declared it was withdrawing its interest for the controversial striker.
Does he stay or go?
Balotelli has cost £53 million in three transfers, but the 24-year-old’s stock has now plummeted.
He will stay with the Reds if he can’t find a club who is willing to sign him, but his prospects of even making the substitute bench next season does not look bright after the club signed forwards Divock Origi and Danny Ings.
At this stage, it appears Liverpool’s best bet to rid themselves of Balotelli would be a loan move, but it looks like the club might struggle to find anyone to take him.
