Liverpool have reportedly pulled out of a deal to sign Mario Balotelli after AC Milan rejected the option of them having a ‘good behaviour’ clause in his contract, the Daily Star reports.
The Italian international is known for his slightly whacky behaviour and problems with discipline, but his talent has seen him emerge as a top target for a number of sides this summer, with Arsenal also thought to be interested in bringing him back to the Premier League.
Balotelli initially spent a spell at Manchester City in England, before the club decided to offload him due to his difficult personality, though AC Milan are now seemingly keen to do the same.
Liverpool were interested in taking the 24-year-old on loan, but have now pulled out of a deal as they had hoped to secure an option to send him back to the San Siro if his discipline became a problem again.
