Flamengo and Brescia want to sign Mario Balotelli from Marseille before the end of the summer transfer window.
Mario Balotelli is scouting for a new club after his contract with Olympique de Marseille came to end.
Balotelli will be on a free agent after his contract with Olympique Marseille expired and it was understood that Brescia has made a new attempt to try and lure the former Liverpool, AC Milan and Inter Milan man to the club.
Flamengo has proposed an offer of €3m per year plus bonuses for Mario Balotelli, but his hometown club Brescia have swiftly improved their bid for the Italian.
According to couples of the news source, it was understood that Flamengo Vice-President Marcos Braz and lawyers flew to Milan yesterday via Lisbon for a meeting with agent Mino Raiola in order to finalise the transfer deal.
But it was understood that the negotiations with Flamengo have failed to actualise for the 29-year-old, the Serie A newcomers Brescia will make use of the advantage of the situation to sign the player.
However, Balotelli has been waiting in case another bid arrives from Europe, particularly within Italy, and Fiorentina had seemed the favourites.
Balotelli seems determined towards moving to Flamengo this summer and wants to utilise this opportunity as much as possible. The player’s entourage and the Brazilian team are seeking a way to bring in the player to Rio De Janeiro.
