The 27-year-old, who will become a free agent on 1 July, has been linked with a return to Serie A in recent weeks – to Roma and Carlo Ancelotti's Napoli, in particular. 

Raiola, Balotelli's agent, has now spoken about a potential move for his client and how his relationship with the Naples side's president Aurelio De Laurentiis could aid a transfer. 

"You have to ask (incoming Napoli coach Carlo) Ancelotti. What I can say is that apart from Insigne, there is no one as strong as him (Balotelli)," Raiola said, as quoted by FourFourTwo

"Then it will depend on De Laurentiis. He will decide if he wants to reinforce the team or not.

"We have a special relationship with De Laurentiis. Our vision of things is often different – we have closed a few deals – but this does not mean anything.

"Napoli is back big just thanks to him and if he wants to see me, I'm available."
