FOOTBALL ace Mario Balotelli has scored with a sizzling French model.Sexy Vanessa Lawrens has been soaking up the sun with the Manchester City star as he enjoys a break on the party island of Ibiza with his friends.
The 22-year-old beauty was spotted getting out of the striker’s car with a pretty blonde pal and leaning in for a kiss with Mario.
Last week, Vanessa – who is a model, singer and presenter – snuggled up to 21-year-old Mario on the back of a jet-ski in a tiny bikini.
The footballer has been making the most his summer break before the new football season begins.
He was recently spotted out clubbing with American socialite Paris Hilton. Off the pitch, the fiery sportsman has been in a paternity battle with his ex-girlfriend Raffaella Fico.
The couple split in April after their tempestuous year-long relationship ended with a doorstep bust-up. But three weeks ago, model Raffaella revealed she was four months pregnant and claimed the baby was his.
Mario was initially said to be “delighted” with the news but then demanded a DNA test, which she has agreed to.
EVEN when he’s miles away, Mario Balotelli still manages to wind up his Manchester City team-mates
Most of the squad are knuckling down at pre-season training camp in Austria. But Mario is on a lads’ hol in Ibiza after playing for Italy in the Euros final – as he keeps reminding them.
A source said: “Mario thinks it’s hilarious. When he gets back to his hotel he rings up some of his team-mates to wake them up. Sometimes it’s been as early as 5am.”
