Chelsea could be set to open talks with AC Milan striker Mario Balotelli this summer, according to the latest reports.

Italian newspaper Corriere dello Sport claims Balotelli will leave Milan after the World Cup - potentially for Stamford Bridge.

Because the report suggests Chelsea may sound out Balotelli's interest in returning to the Premier League at the end of the season.

The €35m-rated Italy striker, who moved to AC Milan from Manchester City last January, has become unsettled at the San Siro and has been linked with a move away from the club in recent weeks.

With six months before the start of the World Cup, Balotelli has plenty of time to plot his next move should he decide to leave Milan.

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has heavily linked with a move for a striker this month, but he said last week that another forward was not a priority for his side in January.

He may wait until the end of the season, generally accepted to be an easier time to do business, with Chelsea well placed to mount a title challenge despite a lack of goals from Demba Ba, Samuel Eto'o and Fernando Torres.

But Milan director Adriano Galliani remains convinced Balotelli will remain a Milan player.
