“Mario Balotelli is worth €250m,” declared the Italy and Manchester City hitman’s agent.
His three goals in Euro 2012, which could result in the golden boot and trophy if he finds the net this evening against Spain, have raised SuperMario’s profile further.
“He plays for a club side, Manchester City, that does not need money,” Mino Raiola told Sky Sport Italia.
“Right now, I think he is priceless. I have always said Mario has the potential to be one of the best players in the world and right now he’s among the best in Europe.
“If I had to pick a price-tag, I’d say Balotelli is worth €250m. Think I’m crazy? Just as the Manchester City owners.”
