Mario Balotelli next club odds: Barnsley in the mix with Fulham as former Liverpool and Man City ace looks for new club


MARIO BALOTELLI could soon be on his way to Barnsley.

Yes, you read that correctly. The Championship club have launched an initial enquiry for the former Italy international.


The 30-year-old, who won the Premier League title with Manchester City, is currently a free agent.

The forward has been without a club since Brescia terminated his contract for disciplinary issues in June.

He's since been keeping fit with Serie D minnows Franciacorta.

Barnsley's co-chairmen Chien Lee and Paul Conway have held discussions with Balotelli's representatives.

But no deal has yet been agreed between the two parties.

And Bookmakers Betfair rate Balotelli's chances of swapping Italy for Yorkshire at 8/1.

Genoa head the market at 6/1 with Torino following close behind at 7/1. Premier League Fulham are 12/1 and French outfit Strasbourg at 12/1 outsiders.

Mario Balotelli next club odds – Betfair

  • Genoa – 6/1
  • Torino – 7/1
  • Barnsley – 8/1
  • Fulham – 12/1
  • Strasbourg – 16/1

Balotelli has scored 151 goals in 383 career appearances for several of Europe's biggest clubs.

The Italian has represented Inter Milan, City, AC Milan, Liverpool and Marseille, winning three Serie A titles and the Champions League.

Betfair Spokesperson, Sam Rosbottom said: "Reports today have linked former Premier League winner and captain mischief, Mario Balotelli to Championship outfit Barnsley.

"However, it doesn't look as though South Yorkshire will be seeing fireworks anytime soon as the club are 8/1 to be the free agent's next team. It looks a lot more likely that the Italian will stay in his home country with Genoa the favourites at 6/1 and Torino a 7/1 shout to be Balotelli's next club."
