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.

Any chance we can sell Balotelli to United for £125m? Worth a shot at least.— Chris Hewitt (@ChrisHewittLFC) August 7, 2016
Scenes if United sign Balotelli and Mourinho somehow revives his career.
