According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Inter striker Mario Balotelli has agreed to sign for Man City, for around €30m.

Balotelli had leaving party at Milan’s Van Gogh café on Via Bertani on Saturday evening.

The teenager’s mate’s unveiled a piece of canvas with the message: “Even 1000km away, you’ll always be in our hearts… you big mentalist.” (The ‘big mentalist’ part may be an embellishment.)

La Gazzetta also claims Super Mario has signed a four-year deal worth €4m a season.

Balotelli has huge potential but he’s also a hothead and a run of games on the bench – which will happen -is likely to set him off. This will not end well, I feel. A training-ground clash with Craig Bellamy is imminent – if Bellamy stays.

Do you think he’s a good signing for City?
