Agent: Mario Balotelli not leaving Manchester City for AC Milan
Italian striker has been linked with move away from the Etihad
Mario Balotelli's agent has signalled that the Manchester City player will not leave the club this month, declaring he has no intention of entering into negotiations with another side.
"I'm not interested in negotiating with anyone. Mario stays at City," Mino Raiola told The Independent yesterday. Raiola clearly believes it will not serve Balotelli's interests to get him moved to Milan, even though the City manager Roberto Mancini considers that the Milan president Silvio Berlusconi's negative comments about the player are a pretence.
Milan's chief executive, Adriano Galliani, has rejected the idea of a Balotelli move. Mancini is the last member of the City hierarchy to have any faith in Balotelli and has never suggested that he wants to sell.
