Balotelli '2000%' staying at City

Mario Balotelli will continue to play his football for Manchester City after suggestions of a return to Serie A were shot down.

The Italian international was back in Italy with his agent on Monday which ignited the transfer rumour mill.

However, Mino Raiola and the player himself dismissed questions linking him with a switch to Italian champions Milan.

"I'm staying at City," the player stated before Raiola took centre stage.

"Mario Balotelli will remain at Manchester City, that's 2000 per cent certain," noted the representative.

"I know that Adriano Galliani likes him, but Milan have never made an official offer for him."

Balotelli joined City last summer after his relationship with Inter broke down despite being part of the treble winning side.

The striker was yesterday recalled to the Italy squad too after being omitted from the Giro Azzurro in the past due to injury and disciplinary reasons.
