Dortmund and Marseille 'want to sign Balotelli', claims agent Raiola

Nice may still be able to keep the enigmatic Italian, but his representative says the former Manchester City striker has other options to consider

Mario Balotelli is wanted by Borussia Dortmund and Marseille, according to his agent Mino Raiola.

The striker is out of contract after one season at Nice, where he scored 15 goals in 23 Ligue 1 appearances to help them to an impressive third-place finish and Champions League qualification.

Balotelli, 26, said last week he was going to take a break before evaluating his next move, with a stay at Nice still possible.

But Raiola has revealed they face competition, with Bundesliga giants Dortmund and domestic rivals Marseille also keen to swoop.

"Balotelli trusts me," Raiola said to Corriere dello Sport

"I am picky and he knows it. Will he remain at Nice? We will see. He is wanted by Borussia Dortmund and Marseille.

"His performances at Nice have been positive, though Mario has to give much more because he doesn't have many more chances.

"At the same time, I'm happy to see him very empowered in his role as a father."
