Manchester City forward Balotelli does not want to return to Serie A, insists agent

Mino Raiola admits the 22-year-old wanted to go back to his native Italy two years ago but is currently not after a move and insists Robinho will not leave AC Milan
Mario Balotelli's agent has indicated that his client does not intend to return to Serie A, despite the Manchester City striker being heavily linked with a move to AC Milan.

The Italian giants' president Silvio Berlusconi had reportedly been expressing interest in the controversial attacker but has since suggested the player would cost too much, with agent Mino Raiola also stating his value equals that of the Mona Lisa.

Raiola has once again reiterated his client's desire to stay put, denying new reports that the Serie A outfit could be lining up Brazilian Robinho as a makeweight in any deal.

"Two years ago Balotelli asked me to come back in Italy, but after this he never said more," he told reporters.

"I think AC Milan will keep Robinho."

The agent then moved to alert the big teams about rising star, and former City man, Vladimir Weiss. The 23-year-old joined the Premier League side as a youth player in 2006 before spells at Bolton, Rangers and Espanyol on loan.

The winger joined Serie A new boys Pescara on a permanent deal in the summer, though, but Raiola thinks the Slovakia international could gain a bigger move after netting three times in 13 games.

He added: "Vladimir Weiss is ready to a top club."
