Napoli president De Laurentiis in contact with Nice striker Balotelli

Napoli president Aurelio de Laurentiis is exploring the prospect of bringing Nice striker Mario Balotelli back to Italy.

Gazzetta dello Sport says De Laurentiis has made initial contact with Balotelli's agent, Mino Raiola, and learned Nice will sell for €10m.

AS Roma are also in talks with Raiola, while in Germany, Borussia Dortmund are keen.

Balotelli has made it no secret of his love of Naples and the admiration he has for Napoli fans.

A return to Serie A is favoured by Balotelli after receiving encouragement from new Italy coach Roberto Mancini that the door is open for his international return.
