Former Man City striker Mario Balotelli joins up with Manchester United hero at new club

The former Manchester City Premier League winner makes the 12th move of his career and links up with ex-Manchester United winger Nani. Balotelli left just 12 months into his stay at Sion after signing a two-year deal in 2022.

He scored six goals in 19 appearances for the club but has been let go early after a rocky time. He fell out of favour amid a spate of injuries and Sion were relegated from the top-flight.

Addressing Balotellis exit, club president Christian Constantin told Le Nouvel Liste: Everything was resolved in a very courteous manner with Mario. The document that we prepared is now in the hands of our lawyers who must complete it.

“Rather than talking about money issues, I would have preferred him to score the goals we hoped for. That said, its time to move on.
