ROME: Former Manchester City and Liverpool striker Mario Balotelli's three-year deal at hometown club Brescia is set to be terminated following his repeated absence from training. According to a report in Sky Sports, Balotelli has been involved in a bitter bust-up with club president Massimo Cellino as he has been deserting the Serie A team's return to training after coronavirus restrictions in Italy were eased at the start of May.
The club offered the 29-year-old a consensual termination of his contract, but he rejected the proposal and his lawyer has now received a letter confirming that the player's employment at the club is set to be terminated.
Balotelli has reportedly missed a number of training sessions and in May, he was told to train on his own after failing a series of physical tests to which he had been subjected, and from thereon the situation escalated with each passing day. IANS
