The agent of Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli has dismissed suggestions that a transfer agreement is in place with AC Milan.
Balotelli has struggled to settle in England since his multi-million pound arrival from Inter Milan last summer and is said to be interested in a move back to the city of Milan at the end of the season, but his representative claims that there is nothing set in stone.
When asked if Balotelli would go to Milan, his agent, Mino Raiola, told Radio Kiss Kiss:
“One day, perhaps. But he will go elsewhere. I am single in my work. I am not married to anyone. Balotelli will be free to go where he wants to go when the right time arrives for this. I don’t want him to go away from Manchester because City is the ideal team for him. The Premier League is perfect for him and he has not shown anything. His next step will be to prove his worth so that AC Milan, Real Madrid, Barcelona, Chelsea or others may have to battle to take him. We have no agreements with Milan nor with others. We must not do favours for anyone.”
With the arrival of Edin Dzeko at City this month, I would not be surprised to see Balotelli head back to Italy this summer. He undoubtedly has immense talent, but even at 20 his is extremely immature for his age.
