Redknapp: I tried to sign Balotelli

“You never know what you’re going to get with Mario Balotelli but one thing is certain – he is a major talent. He stunned Germany in the Euro 2012 semi-final and his second goal was fantastic. I actually tried to sign him for Tottenham before he went to Manchester City.”

“I’d admired him for a while and I went over to Italy to watch him play. I was impressed and I met up with him too. We wanted him on a loan deal but his club weren’t keen and it never happened. Shame because he’s definitely got it and, at only 21-years-old, he’ll be terrorising defenders for many seasons to come.”
