City Scoff At Super Mario Speculation

Manchester City’s assistant coach, David Platt, has rubbished the continuing speculation that Mario Balotelli is Milan bound.

More reports emerged over the weekend suggesting that AC Milan are keen to bring Italian international striker Balotelli home, to give him an escape from his Etihad penury.

And early on Monday morning some newspapers suggested City would accept cash plus former Ghana international Kevin-Prince Boateng from Milan, to send Super Mario the opposite direction.

However, Platt insists that none of City’s coaching staff know of any deal to let Balotelli go.

And he believes the trouble-making hit-man will be at City when the January transfer window slams shut later this week.

"I saw that speculation (on Sunday) but I've not heard anything,” Platt said.

"It's a shame Robbie's not here. He might know more than me but as far as we are concerned I think he is still a Manchester City player. I don't think there is anything is going to happen."
