Mihajlovic: Balotelli to Torino? Why not?

Updated: 

Torino coach Sinisa Mihajlovic is open to signing Mario Balotelli if star forward Andrea Belotti leaves as expected.

Balotelli, 26, is linked with several clubs after a fine campaign with Nice, where he scored 17 goals in all competitions.

Belotti, meanwhile, is reportedly a target for Manchester United after a prolific season that saw him net 26 Serie A goals.

Should Belotti depart, Mihajlovic would consider reuniting with Balotelli after the pair worked together at AC Milan in 2015-16.

"Balotelli to Turin? I'd take him," he told Sky Italia.

"I got him to Milan. Why not?"

Balotelli scored just one goal in 20 league games - eight of which were starts - during his 2015-16 season at Milan.
