Moratti clarifies Mario Balotelli’s City move


Internazionale president Massimo Moratti has revealed that his club have yet to reach an agreement with Manchester City to seal Mario Balotelli's transfer to England.

The 19-year-old striker is also reportedly deadlocked with the Citizens over personal terms, with Moratti hoping that the deal could move forward early next week.

He told Sky Italia:"For Balotelli to go to Manchester City, we are still missing an agreement with the club.

"We will probably talk about this on Monday to try and find a definite agreement with the English side."

Meanwhile, newly-appointed Citizens assistant manager Attilio Lombardo has talked up the potential of Italy Under-21 international Balotelli.

He added:"Of course if Mario were to come with us we'd be happy to welcome him.

"We are all convinced that Balotelli is a player of immense capabilities, a real champion who can change a game on his own.

"What's more, someone so young arriving in an important League like the Premier League can be a great experience and have an opportunity to grow."
