Man City looking to ship Balotelli out for cheap?
According to the Daily Star, Champions Manchester City have admitted that they may have to sell striker Mario Balotelli for as little as £10m in the January transfer window.
City manager Roberto Mancini has finally ran out of patience with the controversial Italian international and will sell Balotelli to the highest bidder when the transfer window reopens next month.
City fear they will have to sell the former Inter Milan striker on the cheap as clubs will be put off by Balotelli’s bad behaviour in the past.
However, despite the forwards’ misdemeanours, it is understood that AC Milan would be keen to take Ballotelli on loan for the rest of the season.
City’s number 45 was a shock inclusion in Mancini’s first-team line-up against rivals Manchester United last Sunday and stormed down the tunnel in a huff after he was subbed on 52 minutes.
It is believed that Mancini has finally had enough and is keen to flog the player as soon as possible.
A club source said:
“Mario has been given all the help he needs to become a success at the club but the problem is he doesn’t help himself.”
“His attitude is wrong and there is only so much the manager can take.”
