Mario Balotelli's Manchester City future has been thrown into doubt after pictures emerged of what appeared to be a furious training-ground bust-up with manager Roberto Mancini.

It is reported Mancini stepped in after Balotelli went in too strongly on team-mate Scott Sinclair for the City boss' liking.

Balotelli is reported to have taken exception to Mancini's intervention, leading to the pair having to be pulled apart.
