Inter Prepare New Deal For Mario Balotelli - Report

The champions want to keep hold of Supermario...
Inter are ready to arrange a new deal for striker Mario Balotelli which will see him remain with the club until 2015 at the earliest, according to La Gazzetta Dello Sport.

President Massimo Moratti has been impressed with Balotelli's development this season, and he has told directors to prepare new terms for his young hotshot.

Balotelli's current deal expires in 2013, but Inter will offer him a further two-year option and a guaranteed €2.5 million a season. It represents a hulking increase to his salary as he started off on just €1.2m per annum in 2008.

He will also receive success-related bonuses. Inter will hold talks with the player and his representatives before the World Cup, giving them plenty of time to plan ahead of next season.
