Paris Saint-Germain are being linked with a January move for ex-Manchester City bad-boy Mario Balotelli, according to French newspaper Le 10 Sport.

The source, which cites Italian publication Corriere dello Sport, is claiming that the French champions have been in some sort of contact with Balotelli's agent, Mino Raiola, who coincidentally also represents PSG forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Reports have surfaced recently that the ex-Manchester City star's relationship with current side AC Milan has come under strain of late, and that the daughter of owner Silvio Berlusconi, Barbara Berlusconi, wants to get of rid of Balotelli as she begins to become more involved in the club's affairs.

The 24-year-old was made to sit on the bench in AC Milan's last match against Barcelona in the Champions League, which may well offer an insight into trouble brewing between the player and his employers.

Earlier this month it was suggested that Chelsea could be set for a shock swoop for Balotelli, with Jose Mourinho identifying him as an ideal candidate to cure his striking woes.

AC Milan have outright denied that the Italian forward is going anywhere, but with a reported €30million price-tag on his head, neither suitor are likely to be put off.
