San Siro sides in fight to sign Etihad Stadium attacker.
Mario Balotelli’s controversial two-year stint at Manchester City could be coming to an end with both AC Milan and Inter keen to sign the striker.
Reports in Italy are claiming that Balotelli’s former club Inter and current Serie A leaders Milan are both preparing £20million bids for the 21-year-old.

Given Mario Balotelli’s recent antics, both on and off the field of play, Man City may well want to seriously consider offers for their young Italian striker. Whilst there is no denying the talent he possesses, there comes a point where it may well be better off for the club to offload the troubled attacker and move on, and that point was probably reached some months ago.
The 21 year old is unlikely to feature for Man City again this season after Roberto Mancini made it clear just how upset he was with the forward after he got himself sent off against Arsenal after a seriously ill-disciplined performance that should have resulted in a red card some time before.
Inter Milan know about Balotelli’s craziness and seem unlikely to want to go through that headache all over again, though it’s worth noting that new Nerazzurri boss Andrea Stramaccioni is someone who knows the Man City man very well from his time as youth team boss so perhaps he feels he can rein in the youngster?
A move to AC Milan could be a more plausible move as Balotelli has talked up such a move for some time and given that the likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Antonio Cassano are no spring chickens, perhaps an injection of a younger attacking option may interested the Rossoneri.
