AC Milan striker Mario Balotelli is not going to be leaving the San Siro this Summer, according to his agent, Mino Raiola.
The controversial Italian figure had been strongly linked with a move away from Milan after growing frustrated at the lack of success within the club, but any reports of a move away have been dismissed by his agent as he confirms that the striker is keen to stay on in his homeland.
The former-Manchester City striker is quite an attraction of several European teams, despite his antics off the field, and sometimes on it as well, and Premier League trio; Tottenham Hotspur, Chelsea and Arsenal will all be disappointed to hear he wants to stay at Milan, after they were all linked with making a move for him.
The 23-year-old, who is sponsored by Puma, was heavily linked with a shock move to the Gunners after they struck a mega-kit deal with the sponsors earlier this year, and there were even images of Balotelli in the new Arsenal shirt going around the internet.
However, despite a frustrating season for the extravagant footballer, his future remains with Milan and a Summer move away is not on the cards.
His agent is quoted as saying on Sky Sports: "Galliani told me that Mario is not for sale, and this makes us very happy.
"From now to August 31, there will be a lot of rumours about his future, but it is not a problem."
In his first full season at Milan, Balotelli has netted 14 times in 28 appearances, but in recent weeks, his form and attitude has dipped after having bust-ups with manager Clarence Seedorf, and also the Italian media.
The Italian joined Milan back in February of 2013 from City for a fee estimated around £20million after he got too much to handle for then-boss Roberto Mancini.
Balotelli's antics in England proved to be his downfall and after one argument too many, the former-Inter striker was sent back to his homeland.
However, a return to England, which has been reported, will not be happening anytime soon.
