Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Mario Balotelli going nowhere this summer says agent
Wednesday 27 June 2012
Mino Raiola, the agent who represents both Zlatan
Ibrahimovic and Mario Balotelli, has said that neither of his clients will be
leaving their clubs this summer.
Ibrahimovic had been rumoured to be leaving AC Milan, with a host of clubs reportedly interested, with Balotelli being lined up by the Rossoneri as his replacement.
Juventus were believed to be leading the race to sign the big Swede but Raiola said that it was a matter for Juventus club chairman Andrea Agnelli and director Giuseppe Marotta to discuss.
"Ibrahimovic will stay at AC Milan as much as Balotelli at Manchester City," he told Radio RTL.
"Is it true that Juventus want him? I am not the Juventus owner and I can't deny an opinion that is not mine.
"I don't know. It is a question you have to put to Agnelli and Marotta."
Raiola also insisted that another client of his, Napoli midfielder Marek Hamsik, will be staying in Italy.
"Hamsik remains at Napoli? Absolutely, yes.”
