Despite recent rumors, the manager of Manchester City, Roberto Mancini, has announced that his team's linking striker, Mario Balotelli, will not be moving to AC Milan. Over the past few months, there has been quite a bit of speculation from Italy that the Italian born Mario Barwuah Balotelli could be transferred to the San Siro giants, but according to Mancini, "It is not true, Mario stays here. We didn't have any requests about Mario or other players." Mancini has firmly stood his ground on the truth about Mario Barwuah Balotelli transferring to the San Siro giants, even after a training ground dispute with the player earlier in the month.
Milan is still retaining interest in the chance for a deal with the Manchester City club, and the vice president Adriano Galliani has been issuing regular statements about the deal, but the Milan club refuses to pay for the Manchester City club's £28million valuation.
Mancini is unwilling to allow his protégé player to leave, even if it is for a loan. He states that Balotelli has another three years on his contract.
