Milan reject Madrid's Balotelli bid

After reports suggest Milan turned down a Real Madrid offer for Mario Balotelli, his agent warns “sooner or later everyone is on the market.”

The striker only made the move to San Siro from Manchester City in January for €20m (£17.6m).

According to the Corriere dello Sport, new Real Madrid Coach Carlo Ancelotti ordered his club to make a huge offer in order to tempt SuperMario to La Liga.

However, the Rossoneri assured he is absolutely not for sale, nor is there any buy-out clause in his contract.

“Will Balotelli be sold? No, for the moment he won’t go, but in football those who are not for sale sooner or later go on the market,” agent Mino Raiola told the Corriere dello Sport.

“Milan have an important project in place with Mario and he is very happy here. You can be sure he won’t move for now, but tomorrow... I don’t know.

“It is very tough for Serie A to hold on to top players right now, as their revenue is only a third of what English or Spanish clubs make.”
