Mario Balotelli net worth and salary: Mario Balotelli is an Italian professional soccer player who has a net worth of $40 million dollars. As a 22 year old he signed a $36 million contract with Manchester City. Born in Palermo, Italy, Mario Balotelli, also known as Mario Barwuah Balotelli, grew up in the Brescia region with a foster family, after complications with his health and his family's less than ideal living conditions necessitated that he be raised by someone else. The Barwuahs, his biological family, did not seek to regain custody of their son, though he was never formally adopted by the Balotelli family who took him in, until he had achieved national attention as a football player, which created some controversy. Though he has played incredibly well for all of the teams with whom he has worked, he is known for disciplinary issues and for a lack of commitment to training and practice. He has also been the subject of widespread racial taunts that grew to be so ugly, that some football teams, such as Juventus, were forced to ban home fans from games and cancel part of their home season. Fans have also physically attacked him after games for what they felt was "un-sportsmanlike" conduct during the game. Though he has played well for Manchester City since 2010, his disagreements with the team's manager have led to speculation that he will be let go at the end of the 2012 season.
