After months of inactivity and taking the back seat, controversial Italian striker Mario Balotelli has announced he expects to sign for a new club in a few weeks.
Balotelli made this surprise disclosure during a chat with his brother Enock during the Italian version of the reality TV show Big Brother.
The 30-year-old is currently a free agent, having left Brescia at the end of last season following their relegation from Serie A to Serie B.
Asked what was next for him, Balotelli replied, as quoted by Goal: “I still don’t play, in a few weeks I’ll sign, don’t worry.”
Balotelli’s career has been riddled with a lot of controversies and many people suggest he has not fulfilled his potentials due to many on and off the pitch distractions
The Italy international looked at one point like he could have been a world class attacker, having shone at Manchester City as a youngster before also impressing at AC Milan.
It all went wrong for Balotelli with his 2014 move to Liverpool, however, and he’s never really recovered since then.
It is yet to be seen where Balotelli will be headed especially as the transfer window in major leagues have since ended.
