OGC Nice forward Mario Balotelli says his time in Ligue 1 has 'matured' him as he sets his sights on a potential return to the Italian Serie A with a current title-chasing side.
Balotelli, 27, has returned to the form that made him one of Europe's most highly-rated talents, with 22 goals in 30 games across all competitions this season.
The former AC Milan forward has also been tipped to return to the Italy national team over the coming months and in an interview with RAI television, he revealed the two club's he's interested in joining.
"My agent Raiola is dealing with my future -- all I know is that I have matured and I am ready to return to Italy," he said, as quoted by Football Italia. "Juve and Napoli are clubs I like a lot."
Balotelli holds a credible record in the Italian top-flight of 47 goals and 17 assists in 122 games for Inter and the Rossoneri in two separate spells.
