​Sampdoria find Balotelli price too rich

Sampdoria president Massimo Ferrero has said the club have not the resources to sign Liverpool striker Mario Balotelli this summer.

The Italy striker has been linked with a move back to Serie A after a difficult season under Brendan Rodgers at Anfield.

The 63-year-old reiterated his interest in bringing Balotelli to the Stadio Luigi Ferraris but revealed the club cannot fund a move for his services.

The Sampdoria chief told Sky Sports Italia: "I'd like to see Balotelli here, but I can't afford it."
