Balotelli Linked to Bridge Move

This morning we`re greeted by the suggestion, in all the tabloid papers, Mario Balotelli being linked with a move to Chelsea.

It appears that all is not well with Balotelli in Milan and that an uneasy truce exists between the striker and the Milan vice-president who ordered the maverick Italian to change his lifestyle and his haircut.

The link to a move to Stamford Bridge appears to have come about due to Mourinho managing Balotelli whilst both were at Milan, prompting Balotelli`s agent, Mino Raiola, to comment,

"Mario and Mourinho could work together once more. They have remained in contact and there is mutual respect between them."

"Mario is a great striker for certain - and maybe that is what he could be for Chelsea."


On the surface it appears that perhaps there might be some foundation to the rumour until you recall that when Balotelli was in his charge before, our manager described the player as unmanageable, prompting us to believe that this rumor is all hot-air and that nothing will come of it.

Your thoughts on the subject would be greatly appreciated.

That's a joke i guess. Balottelli is one player i don't want to see in blue and according to Jose he's 'unmanageable'. His off-the-pitch antics are the worst you can ever see in a footballer.

That idiot kid can play though, and Roman has an imposing presence within the club.
