Mario Balotelli's agent Mino Raiola believes the striker could still have a future at Liverpool under Jurgen Klopp.

The Italian rejoined AC Milan last August on a season-long loan, a year after arriving in Liverpool for £16m. Balotelli's time at Anfield was a disaster but Raiola told Sky Sports: "He's owned by Liverpool so at the end of the season he should go back. I know Klopp and hopefully will speak to him."

Balotelli has been restricted to four appearances and one goal for Milan this season and has been out since late September with a groin injury.

Meanwhile, Bournemouth have wasted no time in making their first move in the transfer window with the loan capture of winger Juan Iturbe from Roma. The 22-year-old, an Argentina U-20 international, joins for the rest of the season subject to endorsement from the English FA and a European work permit, with the option of a permanent move in the summer.

Elsewhere, Real Madrid playmaker James Rodriguez was caught by police driving at 200 kilometres per hour on his way to a training session.

'AS' said the Colombian was chased to the training ground gates by an unmarked police car that had repeatedly signalled for him to pull over.

The speed limit on the roads he used was 120kph.

Rodriguez could face a hefty fine and have his licence taken away, as happened to team-mate Karim Benzema last year.
