Balotelli To Chelsea?

Super Mario Balotelli’s ‘super agent’, Mino Raiola, has been up to his usual tricks, making smoke where there is no fire.

For the past few weeks, there have been rumours percolating that Balotelli is not ‘settled’ in Italian football.

He has gone on record to say that his current stint in the Serie A is just a passing fad, and that he expects to play elsewhere at some stage in the future.

AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani has insisted that Balotelli is not going anywhere anytime soon.

But Raiola has intriguingly suggested that the striker could enjoy a reunification with Jose Mourinho in the future.

Super Mario sprang to prominence under current Chelsea boss Mourinho when they were employed by Inter Milan.

And while they have not seen eye-to-eye in the past, Raiola says their relationship is cordial, and could be a working one again.

"Balotelli and Mourinho could be reunited because they know each other and they didn't leave each other with hate," Raiola told the British press, according to Soccernet.

"There was a not very nice incident between them, but they parted company on good terms. They have remained in contact and there is mutual respect.

"I know Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani will not agree, but Mario is a great striker that is for certain, and he could perhaps be that at Chelsea."
