AC Milan are lining up a £24 million bid for Mario Balotelli after holding talks with the player’s agent yesterday, according to The Sun.
The Italian has cut a peripheral figure at the Etihad and has only played three minutes of football in City’s last six games, coming on as a last minute substitute against Arsenal last weekend. An angry bust-up with manager Roberto Mancini on January 3rd has led to rumours that the player is now living on borrowed time.
The Premier League Champions believe that AC Milan are interested in Balotelli despite the fact owner Silvio Berlusconi labeled him a ‘rotten apple’ recently and a bid of £24 million could be enough to persuade City to part ways with the troubled Italian.
Balotelli’s representative Mino Raiola was reportedly spotted in an office at the San Siro, sparking speculation Milan were taking the first steps in securing a deal. »
