AC Milan still keen on Mario Balotelli

AC Milan are still interested in bringing Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli to Italy in the January transfer window, according to The Sun.

Despite Milan owner Silvio Berlusconi labelling the Italian forward as a ‘rotten apple’ last week, the Serie A strugglers are still keen on adding to their underachieving squad this month.

Balotelli’s representatives were seen meeting with Milan chiefs this week and it is reported that a bid of around £24million will be enough to entice City into a sale.

Roberto Mancini has given the audacious striker chance after chance to put his off the field struggles to one side but after a training ground bust up a few weeks ago, Mancini is ready to say goodbye to the Italian striker.

Balotelli’s form on the pitch has hardly been impressive this season and with Sergio Aguero’s return to fitness this weekend, the 22-year-old will once again drop to fourth choice in the City pecking order.
