Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli has rubbished talk of a move away from the Etihad Stadium and claims his relationship with manager Roberto Mancini is close to perfect.

The Italian forward has endured a tempestuous relationship with Mancini since joining City at the back end of the summer of 2010.

Constant fallings out between the two players had continued to undermine Balotelli's City career, which has seen him net 11 times this season.

"My relationship with Mancini? It's perfect," Balotelli said.

Such have been the problems between the two that rumours had circulated that the 21-year-old was yearning for a move back to Italy, reports that are denied by the forward.

"The newspapers write that I want to leave Manchester, but I've never talked with them," he added.

"I am in Manchester and I'm under contract with City.

"This is a new experience for me and, although at first it was difficult, I have to tell the truth now that I am really happy here.

"We must stay focused on the Premier League and try to stay ahead and drop as few points as possible, then at the end of the season we will see if we are first or second.
