Balotelli could join Chelsea, says agent

The Italy international's representative, Mino Raiola, hinted that the enigmatic 23-year-old frontman would be open to a reunion with former boss Jose Mourinho at Stamford Bridge
Mario Balotelli could be reunited with Jose Mourinho by making a switch to Chelsea, according to the player's agent.

The pair reportedly had several fall-outs during their time together at Inter, with Mourinho once branding the striker "unmanageable", but the player's agent, Mino Raiola, insists that their differences have been resolved.

Balotelli returned to Serie A with AC Milan in January, scoring 15 goals in 18 league appearances, and the Italian's representative has hinted that the 23-year-old would be open to joining his former Portuguese boss in west London.

"Balotelli and Mourinho could be reunited because they know each other and they didn't leave each other with hate," Raiola told 'Tiki Taka' on Italia 1.

"There was not a very nice incident between them, but they parted company on good terms. They have remained in contact and there is mutual respect.

"It could happen [a move to Chelsea] but [Milan vice-president] Adriano Galliani obviously doesn't want it to."

Chelsea have been in the market for a striker since Mourinho returned to Stamford Bridge, making several unsuccessful attempts to sign Manchester United's Wayne Rooney over the summer.
