Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini has confirmed his interest in signing Internazionale striker Mario Balotelli.
Balotelli, 19, has been linked with moves to the Premier League with Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United already this summer.
The controversial striker regularly found himself at loggerheads with former Inter coach Jose Mourinho last season following a string of disciplinary issues.
But should the Italian club look to cash in on the highly-rated teenager then City, who are managed by another former Inter coach in Mancini, would be interested in signing Balotelli.
"We are always interested in good players," Mancini told an Italian a newspaper.
"If Inter decide to sell, we will be there."
City have already spent more than £50million on David Silva, Yaya Toure and Jerome Boateng during the summer transfer window.
