More players in Mario game – Agent

City have spent several weeks trying to conclude a deal for the

teenager, but have struggled to come to an agreement with both the

player and his club Inter Milan. Reports have claimed that

Balotelli’s demands for a salary of £180,000 a week have

placed the transfer in jeopardy ahead of the start of the season.

However, the Italian’s representative Mino Raiola has brushed off

the speculation and is optimistic that a deal can eventually be

reached for Balotelli to join City. “It’s not true what has been

written by the British tabloids,” Raiola told Sky Italia. “I would

be preoccupied for the next five years of my life if I responded to

such things in the tabloids. “These voices are annoying Mario and

he would like to respond, but it’s not the time. “We have no

problems either with City or with Inter. At the table all three

parties must be happy, we have made an important step forward.

“Mario has never asked for anything, he doesn’t live for the money,

but his passion is playing football. “There is still something to

find for an agreement between us and City, but I am confident there

are only details. “Manchester City remains the priority for us, but

we also have other offers which we will evaluate carefully. “Who? I

can just say they come from both Italy and abroad.”
