Monza’s CEO Adriano Galliani has revealed Mario Balotelli’s agent Mino Raiola didn’t want any commission for the striker’s transfer.
The Italian has agreed to join the Serie B side. He had left Brescia last summer.
Adriano Galliani revealed how Monza wrapped up the deal with the former Liverpool, Inter and Milan striker.
“I still believe in him, Mario is a good boy. I noticed all his availability,” he told La Gazzetta dello Sport.
“I told him: ‘Do not trust the flatterers. If necessary, you will hear my reproaches. But they will be for your good’. And in his eyes I read the understanding, the one I was looking for.
“The injury of [Mattia] Finotto had left us without a centre forward for the rest of the season. I spoke to Berlusconi about Balotelli on Tuesday. He told me to go ahead, he gave me carte balance,” he continued.
“Both Christian Brocchi and the director of sport Filippo Antonelli shared this choice.
“Mario and Mino Raiola have been available, Mino renounced any commission,” Galliani revealed.
“We knew we would come to an agreement. So much so they told me to decide the figures of the contract.
