He has not played since 4 December following a disagreement with coach Patrick Vieira. Balotelli’s contract with Nice expires at the end of the season.

Balotelli, who has also played for Inter Milan in a 12-year career, scored 42 goals in 64 games in his first two seasons in France. But he was dropped by Italy in September 2018 and has not scored in 10 games for Nice this season.
