Raiola confirms Manchester City stay

Mario Balotelli will remain at Manchester City for at least another year and a half according to the player’s agent Mino Raiola, Sky Sports report.

It was reportedly this week that the relationship between Roberto Mancini and Balotelli had hit an all-time low after the player was left out of the squad for the game against Spurs.

It is clear that tensions have surrounded the pairs relationship over the past few seasons but Railo dismisses what the English press have reported this week as garbage.

“He feels really good at City,” Mino Raiola told Mediaset.

“There is no crisis between Mario and City or between Mario and Mancini.

“What the papers write is garbage. Not being happy at being in the stands is completely different to wanting to leave.

“We plan to stay at City for at least another year-and-a-half. Even if we did decide to leave tomorrow, I don’t think there are any clubs in Italy that could sign him.”
