Inter striker Mario Balotelli is at the centre of a potential transfer war between Man City and Man Utd – both clubs have been linked with the young Italian. In an interview with an Italian newspaper, Balotelli hinted that he would consider a move to England.
“[Roberto] Mancini? He is a great coach. He let me have my Serie A debut and I admire him very much, also because he is a friend,” Balotelli told Il Corriere dello Sport.
“United are also a great club… and [their interest] means I am not weak like I thought.
“On my future I always say ‘I don’t know’. An important year is ahead of me in terms of my career.
“For now I am on holiday and I want to start the season well. If you want to know more then you have to ask Raiola [Mino, the player’s agent].”
Inter president Massimo Moratti has said Balotelli is not for sale, but the player craves more playing time.
“It’s nice that the president says things like that and that he considers me as a leader of the club, but I need to play. I cannot be a leader and not play,” Super Mario added.
Whatever decision Balotelli and his agent make, I would love to see him in the Premier League. He’s very talented, very volatile, and however long his stint in England might last, it certainly wouldn’t be dull.
