Balotelli's likely City summer exit
Published : 10 Apr 2012 11:42:56
Balotelli might not continue at Manchester City as manager Roberto Mancini seems to have run out of patience with the Italian striker.
The former Milan player saw two yellow cards in last weekend's game against Arsenal at the Emirates. The first for a knee-high tackle on Song - that many people thought should've been a straight red, but in the end he saw the red card after a takcle on Bacary Sagna.
This was the Italian's second red card this season, his fourth as a Manchester City player.
After the game, City boss roberto Mancini said "That's enough, We only have six games left and he [Balotelli] will not play for the rest of the season".
When asked if there was a chance that the Italian international would be sold at the end of the season he said "probably but I don't know, it depends because Balotelli is a fantastic player".
There were rumours that after Balotelli's actions cost him his place in this summer's European Championship, however the Azzurri's coach Cesare Prandeli said that Balotelli "did not breach my ethics code" and that his sending off was "for a foul that was part of the game".
If the 'enfant terrible' or 'badboy' were to be up for sale both Inter Milan and AC Milan would be willing to sign the 21 year old.
