Since his iconic goal celebratory pose he struck after scoring Italy’s goals in the 2-1 semi-final defeat of Germany during the Euros (like it or not millions of women football fans were drawn to the 21-year-old’s perfectly toned physique) leaving some minds to wonder what exactly the Manchester City bad boy would look like in some very tight purple (to be specific) pants.

Believe it or not ladies, we’ve got our answer. Balotelli was pictured at his Ibiza apartment soaking up the sun in nothing more than his pants. And we can’t say we’re too disappointed.

Nice necklace

Then again we’re a little let down with his choice of pants. Mario next time you should ditch the granddad budgie smugglers and go for a David Beckham-esque Emporio Armani look instead… just for future reference!
