City want to keep Balotelli – agent

The agent of Mario Balotelli doubts that the Manchester City striker could end up at Milan by the end of the month.

The Rossoneri have admitted that they are ready to discuss a transfer if the Premiership giants reduce their asking price.

“City want €37m? They have never asked for money because they haven’t put the player up for sale,” Mino Raiola told GR Parlamento on Monday.

“There are no negotiations going on for Balotelli, not with any side. And there will be no meeting in the week.

“City don’t want to sell Mario, never mind loan him out. At the minute there is a zero per cent chance of a move. But who knows what will happen until January 31.”

Inter recently revealed that they have an option to re-sign the player who they sold in the summer of 2010.

“There is an agreement between Inter and City, but that does not stop the player from choosing a different destination,” Raiola clarified.
