Super Mario Balotelli is on his way to England right now (he might have landed at Manchester Airport already), to undergo a medical at Man City.

This morning, City boss Roberto Mancini told hacks: “We are close with Balotelli. Hopefully today or tomorrow. Mario is on his way here today.”

That’s right folks – City and Inter have finally agreed a deal that will see the young Italian striker move to Eastlands, for a fee reported to be £24m.

That’s a hell of a lot of money for a teenager with a bad attitude, but we’ll see if Mancini can get the best out of him, as he claims.

Tevez, Adebayor, Balotelli – good luck with that, Roberto.
