Balotelli deal on the brink

Published Add your comment

Manchester City are on the verge of signing Mario Balotelli.

Roberto Mancini told a press conference that the club was close to capturing the 20-year-old Italy striker.

The City boss said: "We are close with Balotelli. Mario is on his way here."

Another of Mancini's targets, Aston Villa's James Milner, is also expected to sign for the north west club.

However, Milner's move may have to wait until after the opening weekend of the Barclays Premier League season.

Mancini said: "We need another two or three days for this situation. We need everyone to be happy."
