Balotelli recently appeared on Muschi Selvaggio’s podcast.

Balotelli said: “As long as Messi plays, I will continue to say that he is the strongest player around. Afterwards, perhaps, it will be the turn of Haaland and Mbappé. Also keep an eye on Leao and Osimhen: with the right head, they can reach the level of Erling and Kylian.”
