Mario Balotelli’s New Wage Will Surprise You

Mario Balotelli

Whether fact or fiction, there was once a Mario Balotelli story doing the rounds from his time at Manchester City that the Italian striker gave a homeless man £1000 in cash after a big casino win.

How ironic then that just a few years down the line Balotelli is ‘homeless’ and potentially about to earn a poverty wage in football terms,

Not-so Super Mario is about as welcome round Liverpool as a copy of The Sun newspaper, with the Italian striker being told to pack his bags and find himself a new club.

However, Balotelli’s stock has fallen so far, nobody wants a piece of the firework firing, women’s prison-visiting pig enthusiast. There have been rumours ahoy linking him with a host of new suitors, but nobody seems to want to burden themselves with a troublesome forward who has scored just two league goals across a two-season spell split between Liverpool and AC Milan since 2014.

Another problem is the player’s salary. Balotelli is on an estimated £5m per year at Anfield, which is about £5m a year too much given his contribution so far.

One side reportedly interested in the 26-year-old are Serie A outfit Palermo. The Sicilian’s narrowly avoided relegation to Serie B last term and for some reason believe Balotelli could be the man to revive their flagging fortunes.

But for the move to go through, Balotelli would have to take on a huge wage-cut which would see him earning less per week than he does per day on his Liverpool deal.
