Balotelli flattered by Milan interest

Mario Balotelli is flattered to hear of AC Milan's interest, but his agent insists he is focused on becoming a success with Manchester City.

The forward only joined the Eastlands revolution last month after leaving the Rossoneri's bitter rivals Inter Milan in a reported £24million deal.

But that has not stopped Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani from expressing his desire to sign the 20-year-old at some point in the future.

And Balotelli, who was ruled out of action for six weeks with a knee injury on Wednesday, admits Galliani's comments sit well with him.

He told Sky Italia: "I'm pleased for the words of Galliani. I like AC Milan, they are a strong team."

Balotelli's agent Mino Raiola, though, maintains his client will not contemplate a move back to Serie A with his career at City so fresh.

He added: "Balotelli to Milan is only a fantasy that does not correspond to reality.

"The owner of Manchester City is an important character and now would be wrong to think of the future.

"Mario must keep a cool head and prove to be a big player in England, then after a few years we'll see.

"In the market you can never rule out anything, his move to Milan, Real Madrid, Juventus or a return to Inter. But talking today about it is wrong."
