thumbnail Hello,

The Italian's antics this season have made him a favourite with the fans, but Mancini appears increasingly frustrated with his striker, could he be sold this summer?

Mario Balotelli seems to have pushed Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini to the edge with his on and off-field antics this season, but will the former Inter boss decide enough is enough and cash in during the summer?

The Italian striker's exploits have been well documented this season, gaining him cult status with fans from teams throughout England.

Yet there seems to be a zero tolerance attitude to his misbehaviour at the Etihad Stadium which end result in him being one of the first out of the door this summer.

If Manchester City do eventually lose out to Manchester United in the race for the Premier League title the current disharmony in the dressing room may well be blamed, and fingers may point towards Balotelli, despite his goals.

One of the most interested parties are believed to be AC Milan who have a record of controlling out-of-hand players, with formerly-sulking stars such as Robinho and Zlatan Ibrahimovic turning their careers around at San Siro.
