Milan & City In Balotelli Negotiation

Talks are expected to take place between Manchester City and AC Milan on Monday, regarding the future of Mario Balotelli.

English champions City have reportedly offered their trouble-making Italian international striker to the Rossoneri.

But Milan are trying to bargain City down to a slightly more affordable price.

It appears that Super Mario could indeed be headed out of the Etihad, if City and Milan can reach an agreement.

City are thought to want £31million for Balotelli. But they may ultimately settle for something in the region of the £24m he cost  when he signed from Inter Milan in 2010.

Balotelli was not even in City’s weekend squad, with the sense that manager Roberto Mancini has finally lost patience with his measly goal return, dubious commitment and the kind of company he keeps away from the game.

Neither the Balotelli camp nor City have commented on his potential departure.

But Milan’s vice-president, Adriano Galliani, revealed over the weekend that only City’s initial asking price is stopping them from bidding for Balotelli’s services.

"At the end of Friday, Manchester City still said €37m,” Galliani told Gazzetta dello Sport.

“We will see on Monday. Under these conditions, he will remain at Manchester City."
