Inter Milan president Massimo Moratti insists Mario Balotelli will not be joining Manchester City in January.
The appointment of former Inter coach Roberto Mancini as City manager on Saturday has fuelled speculation 19-year-old striker Balotelli could head to Eastlands when the transfer window opens.
"I think they (Manchester City) have made a great signing (Mancini)," said Moratti. "But they should not inquire about Balotelli for January because we are not selling him."
Balotelli, who is under contract with the Nerazzurri until 2011, has made just six league starts for Jose Mourinho's side this campaign.
