thumbnail Hello,

Inter striker Mario Balotelli has emerged as a summer transfer target for Manchester City, according to a report from The Times.

City boss Roberto Mancini apparently believes that the often controversial player's raw talent can help turn City in Champions League contenders.

Balotelli's most recent disciplinary spat involved throwing his shirt to the floor at the end of Inter's Champions League semi-final first leg victory over Barcelona at the San Siro.

However, Mancini reportedly feels that the 19-year-old's volatile temperament will be less of a disruption in England as he continues to focus his recruitment drive on Italy.
