Mario Balotelli is unlikely to return to Inter Milan in January, according to club vice-president Javier Zanetti.

The 24-year-old Liverpool forward has failed to make an impact since moving to Anfield from AC Milan over the summer and has been linked with a move back to Italy.

Zanetti told Sky Italia: "A Balotelli return? We all know Mario is a great player but I think it's difficult because he only just arrived at Liverpool.

"In any case, after our game against Lazio (December 21) we will hold meetings to see what we can do and what is needed in terms of the (transfer) market."

Sturridge optimistic after Liverpool defeat


Absolutely gutted for everyone. Woke up and watched the game and it hurts. I'm optimistic though and I hope everyone else feels the same.


Just know I'm working hard to ensure I'm back healthy. I miss everything about the game. I can't wait to help us be successful. #redordead
