City fail in Balotelli bid

Published Add your comment

Inter Milan have rejected a bid from Manchester City for precocious teenager Mario Balotelli, the player’s agent has confirmed.

Only last week Inter director Marco Branca insisted the 19-year-old was not for sale, but City are still attempting to prize the striker away from the San Siro.

"Was there a real offer from Manchester City? Yes, there was but it is not for me to say, " revealed Balotelli’s representative, Mino Raiola.

"Mario Balotelli's situation is calm. He is an Inter player. There are no negotiations, so he will remain at Inter."

The Italian youngster has a reputation for being tempestuous, and was reported to have fallen out with former Inter boss Jose Mourinho on several occasions. But this did not stop him from scoring 10 goals in 34 appearances for the Nerazzurri last season.

He has also been linked with a move to Arsenal; commenting that he was “happy” to be on the club’s radar.
