Linked to several clubs, including Sampdoria, Sassuolo, Olympique Marseille, and Werder Bremen, Italian controversial striker Mario Balotelli (26) might be extending his deal with OGC Nice, after a very successful season, which followed some very disappointing campaigns spent between AC Milan and Liverpool. To this end, his agent Mino Raiola, a very controversial figure as well, stated: "I'm meeting Nice management soon, and discuss about Mario. I think he should stay put and keep working with Favre, and, if he scores 20 or more goals, I think he should be called up for World Cup. I don't know what goes through Ventura's mind, but it doesn't look like he's disposing of extremely good attacking players, so far". If not achieving a renewal agreement, former Inter Milan and Manchester City player will leave French club as a free agent.
