Adana Demirspor President reveals Newcastle United are among the clubs interested in Mario Balotelli who has a release clause included in his contract.

The Italy international joined the Turkish club as a free agent in the summer and has scored eight goals in 20 appearances across all competitions under Vincenzo Montella.

Balotelli, a former Inter, Milan, Liverpool and Manchester City striker, sees his contract expire in June 2024 and dreams of returning to Italy national team for the World Cup play-offs in March.

Adana Demirspor President Murat Sancak has released several interviews over the last few days, discussing the player’s availability and revealing the striker’s release clause.

“An Arab team made an offer for Balotelli yesterday. We refused, we said ‘we do not want to sell him,” Sancak told Sports Cauldron on January 14, as quoted by Fanatik.

“Newcastle United were considering signing Balotelli, but they have not made an offer so far. There is a release clause in his contract, but I won’t tell you how much is that.”

Sancak released another interview yesterday, adding that “€10m is only the starting point to sign Balotelli” but insisted he is “not considering” selling him.

Balotelli has scored 21 goals in 70 Premier League games and 52 goals in 141 matches in Serie A.

He has 36 senior Italy caps to his name and 14 goals.

Newcastle United have made an opening bid for Atalanta star Duvan Zapata, but La Dea won’t sell the Colombian striker for at least €45m.
