thumbnail Hello,

'Super Mario' would command a very large transfer fee...

Inter president Massimo Moratti has told the press that a bid of no less than €40 million would be required to prise teenage sensation Mario Balotelli away from the club.

Both Arsenal and Manchester City are reportedly interested in the 19-year-old, who scored nine times in Serie A last season, but the Nerazzurri supremo insists they'll have to pay up if they want the talented goalscorer.

"Bring €40 million and Balotelli could leave," he was quoted as saying by Sportmediaset.

The player's agent, Mino Raiola, suggested his client's future depends on the playing time he will receive under new coach Rafael Benitez. Balotelli frequently had his differences with former coach Jose Mourinho - at times being left out of the squad all together.

Inter also have the likes of Samuel Eto'o, Diego Milito and Goran Pandev in their strikeforce.
