Mario Balotelli could make a return to the Premier League

For the Daily Fantasy sports fanatics, the January transfer window can be very crucial. We have seen some incredible signings during the years in the month of January.

Some transfers that might stand out more than others, for example, Luis Suárez from Ajax to Liverpool, Patrice Evra from Monaco to Manchester United, Mikel Arteta from Real Sociedad to Everton, Nemanja Vidic from Spartak Moscow to Manchester United, Javier Mascherano from West Ham to Liverpool.

These are just a bunch of good January signings during the years, but of course, not all signings have gone as expected, Torres is one example when he made his huge move from Liverpool to Chelsea.

This years transfer window looks to bring back some ex-Premier League Players, with Samir Nasri that now has landed in West Ham (costs 6,3m on FanTeam).

Now Newcastle is looking to bring in Mario Balotelli and he’s someone who everyone knows of, both on and of the pitch. We all remember the fireworks incident when he fired off fireworks in his own bathroom and that the firefighters had to arrive quickly. On the pitch during his time at Manchester City, he made some incredible goals and also managed to get one assist during his whole time at the club. But that one and only assist he made was delivered to Agüero when he scored the historical 2011/12 title-winning goal in the 93rd minute against QPR.

Balotelli has had some problems this season to find the back of the net as a striker for the French club, OGC Nice. Now Newcastle needs some more power in the offense, to try and get out of the relegation zone. The Mirror is now reporting that Rafa Benitez is interested in Balotelli.

OGC Nice won’t be in the Italians way if he wants to leave after head coach Patrick Viera said this:

“I have given Mario a few extra days off to think about his future and what he wants to do.”

“He’s under contract here and everything is possible if we can come to a common agreement who knows.”
