Moratti dismisses Balotelli speculation

April 12, 2012

Inter Milan president Massimo Moratti has rejected talk linking them with a move to bring Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli back to the club.

Reports have suggested that Inter and city rivals AC Milan could battle it out to bring Balotelli back to Italy and end his controversial time in England.

City boss Roberto Mancini hinted last weekend that he would 'probably' sell the temperamental striker following his sending off in the defeat to Arsenal.

The Italy international has since apologised for his latest misdemeanour and admitted he would discuss his future with City's hierarchy at the end of the season.


Moratti, who sold Balotelli to City last summer, is a huge admirer of the striker, but insists he has no plans to re-sign him.

"For the moment he's a Man City player", Moratti told reporters before Inter's win over Siena.

"We followed what happened - he's always the same and he's technically really good.

"But we have not made moves, he's not in our plans, even if we know he's really strong."
