Balotelli valued at a whopping £200m, according to his agent

Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli is valued at £200 million by club according to the temperamental forward’s agent.

The talented but troubled forward featured for Italy at Euro 2012, and although he scored a brace against Germany to send the Azzurri through to the final, was a bit-part figure in a 4-0 defeat to Spain on Sunday

After a number of acts of ill-discipline and bust-ups with Roberto Mancini and other Manchester City players Balotelli has been linked with a move back to his homeland this summer.

However, agent Mino Raiola has stated that City are desperate to keep the striker and should he move the fee demanded would be a new world record.

“Mario Balotelli is worth £200m,” the representative is quoted as saying in The Sun.

“He plays for a club side, Manchester City, that does not need money.

“Right now, I think he is priceless. I have always said Mario has the potential to be one of the best players in the world and right now he’s among the best in Europe.

“If I had to pick a price-tag, I’d say Balotelli is worth £200m. Think I’m crazy? Just ask the Manchester City owners,” he concluded.
