Mario Balotelli wants to stay with Nice and is ready to take a pay cut to ensure that he can, according to president Jean-Pierre Rivere.
“I will only say two or three things on Mario,” he said on Thursday. “The first is that the player wants to stay in Nice. Afterwards, he’s ready to make financial efforts to continue to work with us.”
The 26-year-old has had an unsettled career, playing at five different clubs since 2010. Reports suggest, however, he is ready to commit his next two seasons to Nice, with a monthly salary in the region of €450,000.
