Mario Balotelli reveals he has put his differences with Jose Mourinho to one side and is keen to work with him again.
The Italian striker worked under Mourinho during his spell at Inter Milan before a £20m offer from Manchester City saw the former depart.
Infamously, the pair struggled to get on during their time together but have since become good friends. The 23-year-old is now keen to work with the Chelsea manager again.
Speaking to the Sunday Mirror, Balotelli said: "Of course I would like to play under Jose again.
"In my first days at Inter we had some problems, but then it turned into a mutual respect, and now we have a real friendship."
After a turbulent time at Manchester City, Balotelli moved back to Milan, but for Inter's rivals AC instead. He got off to a flyer, scoring 12 goals in as many games to help the club in to the Champions League.
However, the San Siro outfit have struggled this season and currently sit 11th, completely cut adrift from the top four.
Milan now face the prospect of a season without Champions League football and may have to sell Balotelli to balance the books.
With Chelsea on the lookout for a new star striker, Mourinho could be tempted to making a move, especially after the Italian international's revelation that he would like to play for them once again.
The Italian international added: "It is never boring playing under Jose.
"When you are in Mourinho's team it is a family and he coaches on the principal that if all is well with the family it doesn't matter what is going on outside the team."
