Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini has declared Mario Balotelli is staying at the club.

The striker has been linked with a move away from the newly-crowned Premier League champions, Mancini admitting after his sending off in last month's defeat at Arsenal he would "probably" sell him.

Reports in Italy have suggested Balotelli could head to AC Milan this summer in a swap deal which would bring Zlatan Ibrahimovic to the Etihad, but Mancini told Gazzetta dello Sport: "Mario has been very clear and I reiterate: Balotelli will remain at Manchester 101%."
