New player of Manchester City

The striker, who celebrated his 20th birthday on Thursday, completed his medical this lunchtime before putting pen to paper on his five-year contract at the City of Manchester Stadium.

Roberto Mancini, who worked with Mario during his time in charge at the San Siro, said: “I think that Mario is one of the best players of his age in Europe, and I’m very happy to be working with him again. His style of play will suit the Premier League, and because he is still so young there is a big chance for him to improve. He is a strong and exciting player, and City fans will enjoy watching him.”

The Palermo-born frontman faced the Toure brothers during his first senior international appearance earlier this week, but he will not be available for City’s first game of the season at White Hart Lane on Saturday. (mcfc.co.uk)

New adventure?

Is Mario Balotelli looking for new adventure, even if it’s gonna be loan to Napoli? He is sad because he’s not going on WC, and will talk with new coach about his future at Inter Milan, because, all he want’s is to play.

“I don’t know where will I play next season.” he said for RadioKissKiss.

“Napoli is beautifull city with beautiful sunshine. The fans are incredible and in general the Neapolitan population are an exceptional community.”

“Nevertheless football is a complex sport and there are many factors which contribute to a transfer.”

“I was ready to play for the Azzurri this summer for example but unfortunately I didn’t make it. I don’t think I need to send out any messages to Cesare Prandelli (who will be new coach of Italy after the World Cup) and I will try to convince him with my goals.”

Update

President Massimo Moratti: “He has such immense talent that before selling him to any other club, I’d have to think it over numerous times. This is why we’ll certainly keep hold of him.”

Agent Mino Raiola:
“It was a strange experience with a winning Coach, but Balotelli certainly didn’t cry,”
“It doesn’t interest us who will be the next Coach. I don’t believe that it will be up to him to decide to sell Balotelli.
“The President told me before the Champions League Final that Mario was taken off the market. He confirmed that to me today.
“Mario has another three years left on his contract and that suits us fine.”
