Mark Hughes is once again linked with another way to spend spend spend!
Manchester City are ready to test Inter Milan’s resolve over Mario Balotelli.
Gazzetta dello Sport says City are stepping up their activity in the Italian transfer market ahead of the January window.
Having already rattled Juventus with an approach for Gigi Buffon, City also intend to raid Inter for teenager Balotelli, regarded as the brightest attacking talent in Italy. (tribalfootball.com)
This teenage Serie A sensation has created a few headaches for Jose Mourinho, who has found it hard to give the impressive youngster first-team action due to the world class players ahead of him in the queue. As a result, the 18-year-old has been looking for a move away, at least that is what the press in Italy have been reporting. However, if the Under-21 international came to City, would he not potentially have the same problem?
After all, Mark Hughes already has the likes of Robinho, Jo, Benjani, Bojinov, teenager Daniel Sturridge and Darius Vassell (OK strike that last one) in the striking queue. Super Mario won’t come cheap, valued at as much as £17m, but money is clearly not the issue it once was at Eastlands. Do Man City think the club should attempt this move?
