Agent rejects Balotelli rumours
Mario Balotelli's agent has rejected reports the Manchester City star could be set for a return to Serie A.
The Italian international impressed at Euro 2012 with two goals in his side's semi-final win over Germany, before Italy were outclassed by Spain in the final on Sunday. Balotelli's goals against the Germans had led to speculation that former club Inter Milan and Serie A giants AC Milan could try and make a move for the forward this summer but his agent, Mino Raiola, insists the 21-year-old will not leave the Etihad Stadium. Raiola believes Balotelli is worth in excess of £200million and is adamant that any talk of a move to Italy is wide of the mark. "I'm 200% certain that Mario will not return to Italy at least while I'm his agent," Raiola told Sky Italia. "I have always said that Mario Balotelli is one player that could become the strongest in the world. He is probably amongst the strongest in Europe. "How much is he worth? He is worth what the market says, he is one that can make a difference. "In the actual market I don't think there is a value for him but if I had to give a price I would say he is worth €250million (£201.3m). "I say this to give a figure but you would have to ask the City owner (Sheikh Mansour) how much he is worth."
