Man United and Liverpool fans have taken to social media, after reports emerging from the British press have linked Italian flop Mario Balotelli with a shock move to Old Trafford this summer.


According to the Express, United boss Jose Mourinho met with the striker in a bid to discuss the player’s future, leading to many media outlets claiming that a move for the controversial Italian was on the cards.

Whilst many have drawn their own conclusions on this story, it is believed that the former Chelsea boss met with the 26-year-old, in a bid to help get Balotelli’s faltering career back on track, and not to discuss a potential move to Old Trafford.

A number of clubs, including Sampdoria, Chievo Verona, Ajax and Besiktas have been linked with Balotelli but his wage demands have so far prevented any deals taking place.Mourinho managed Balotelli while in charge at Inter Milan and Calciomercato claim the striker sought out the Portuguese boss for some advice.They say informal talks took place over the last few days and Mourinho is said to have advised Balotelli to change his attitude and lower his demands.Whilst it seems that this story was all innocent, that hasn’t stopped fans from both Liverpool and Man United laughing at the prospect of the Italian striker joining the Mourinho revolution at Old Trafford.Check out some of the humorous Tweets below.

Any chance we can sell Balotelli to United for £125m? Worth a shot at least.
