Jurgen Klopp has shown no desire to include the Italian as part of his plans for Liverpool’s future after he spent the entirety of last season on loan at AC Milan.
There were rumours of a move to Besiktas but as of yet, the maligned striker remains a Liverpool player. Balotelli has reported for pre-season training at the club’s Melwood base and might have been given a second chance by Klopp.
The 25-year-old has made no secret of his love for flashy cars – he’s been snapped in a camouflaged Bentley GT – and so fans would have been mystified to see him arrive to training in a Ford Mondeo.
According to The Sun, Balotelli took a taxi to Melwood and, to avoid being photographed by a journalist, decided to lay down in the back of it.
