Mario Balotelli's agent insists the teenage striker will not leave Inter Milan before the end of this week.

The coveted 19-year-old is wanted by Manchester City, and Manchester United have also been linked with the player that helped Inter win a Coppa Italia, Serie A and Champions League treble during the 2009-10 campaign.

Reports in England claimed Balotelli could become a City player in the next 24 hours but the Mina Raiola has brushed aside those rumours.

"With regards to him (Balotelli), there are no updates nor will be there be any neither today nor throughout this week," Raiola told


Balotelli, who is currently in pre-season training with Inter, is under contract with the Serie A outfit for another three seasons.
