The agent of Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli has had to play down growing speculation in Italy that his client is seeking to return to the Serie A (with AC Milan), just two short months after moving to Eastlands in a deal worth £24.5 million.

City have hardly seen anything from their summer signing yet, with the 20-year-old striker making just two appearances so far this season due to a persistent knee injury.

However, his representative Mino Raiola still felt that the rumours needed to be quashed:

“Balotelli has a five-year contract with Manchester City with no clause. City has never expressed a willingness to sell him, nor has Mario ever expressed the intention to leave.

Come back in Italy? Mario is very well and is happy where he is. Now he must concentrate and think about just playing.”

Don’t you just get the feeling that Super Mario is already blossoming into the kind of ‘superstar’ mercenary that is willing to kiss the badge of whichever club is paying this month’s wages?

    No! What is your evidence for this – That he says he is happy where he is and has no intention of leaving.

    Make up a story and publish lies and baseless conjecture why don’t you!

    Just a gut feeling Sam, just a gut feeling.

    sorry sam am with chris here especially after he posed with an ac milan shirt whilst under contract at inter and the general contempt he showed to inter when he wasn’t playing

  4. The Pope says:

    AC Milan is the team he has always supported.
    If I played for Man U I’d pose in a City shirt any day of the week.

    Chris you’ve admitted that you have no evidence and its just a feeling.

    Wow.

    It was clear at 19 years old that he would turn end up playing in Dubai at once everyone realised just how over rated he was.

    He was treated like crap by Inter’s racist fans from day 1. He didn’t handle it in a very mature way, but the club didn’t make much of an effort to protect him, either. I don’t blame him for hating it.

    As for Man City, it’s way too early even for an arrogant sod like Balotelli to complain about a lack of playing time, he’s hardly been fit for any games! Way too early to go around making crap up about him.
