In the recent winter transfer window, there was speculation about a potential return to Italy and Serie A for Mario Balotelli. However, the striker will remain with Turkish side Adana Demirspor, despite rumours linking him with a move to Italian club Salernitana.
This sensational behind-the-scenes transfer story involving the ex-Milan forward has been reported by Gianluca Di Marzio. He revealed that Walter Sabatini, the sporting director of Salernitana, had made an attempt to purchase the player only today.
Di Marzio was cited as saying: “The Turkish club responded in the negative.” It’s worth noting that this rejection comes despite the club having recently let their player Niang go to Empoli. This proves that Adana Demirspor is not in a selling mood this transfer season.
