The Swiss Super League outfit are hoping to seal an ambitious move for the striker after Liverpool banished him to train alone during the transfer window
Mario Balotelli is in talks with FC Sion over a loan move, according to the club’s chairman.
The Italian is not part of Jurgen Klopp’s first-team plans and was pictured training alone on Wednesday with both Liverpool and the player working towards a summer exit.
Balotelli has been linked with a return to Italy throughout the summer, namely Chievo and Sassuolo, but now a move to Switzerland could be in the offing.
“I can confirm we’re discussing about a possible loan of Balotelli,” Christian Constantin told Ticinonews.ch. “We’re progressing but I can’t say yet if the transfer will be successful or not.”
The former Manchester City, Inter and AC Milan man recently met up with Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho to seek advice, prompting talk of a move to a lower-league English outfit.
Reports in Italy on Wednesday claim Balotelli’s first-choice destination is a reunion with former Inter manager Mourinho at Old Trafford, with agent Mino Raiola looking at cutting another deal with the club.
