Premier League Side Liverpool Agrees To $27M Fee For AC Milan Striker Mario Balotelli
Published August 22, 2014
BALOTELLI 'BAGGAGE': In London, Chris Bascombe wrote to go from Suárez to Balotelli "is not so much from frying pan to fire as from blazing inferno to extreme solar storm." The Uruguayan who, for all his talents, "was privately described as 'a massive headache,'" had vacated the building "only to replaced by the only player in world football with more baggage than Heathrow and JFK combined." Balotelli "has been available all summer and with all other options (apparently) exhausted, it is fair to say Rodgers has been convinced of the merits of assuming the role of babysitter, social worker, psychiatrist and fire safety officer in between his usual duties as a football manager" (TELEGRAPH, 8/21). Also in London, James Orr wrote Balotelli "was never out of the news." Here are "the best reactions to the stunning move from the internet" (INDEPENDENT, 8/21).

People saying they won't believe the Balotelli story until they see him arrive at Melwood. He drives a camouflaged car for goodness sake.— Mick Coyle (@MickCityTalk) August 21, 2014
