Besiktas director denies Mario Balotelli links and insists Turkish club are ‘not interested’ in signing Liverpool misfit

Mario Balotelli is unlikely to stay at Liverpool this summer

Besiktas are more focused on keeping hold of Mario Gomez than signing Liverpool flop Mario Balotelli, this summer, according to the Turkish club’s sporting director.

Balotelli’s agent, Mino Raiola, announced on Thursday that he expected his client to move to the Turkish club after a nightmare stint at Anfield.

But now Besiktas have responded, with their sporting director Erdal Torunogullari declaring their man aim is to keep Gomez – who scored 28 goals last season.

“We know Raiola well,” Torunogullari told TMW.

“He’s even said Balotelli will go to Besiktas, but it’s not like that. We’re not interested, our priority is to hold on to Mario Gomez.

“This month will be decisive, everything depends on him [Gomez]. Only then will we decide what to do.”
