Napoli Call Inter's Mario Balotelli, Agent Mino Raiola Grumbles

Mino Raiola has told Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis not to use the media as a means to trade for Inter striker Mario Balotelli.

De Laurentiis told La Gazzetta dello Sport of his interest in the Italian youngster and opened the door to a move.

"This would be the ideal city for him [Balotelli] and he would have the right space to become a champion," the Napoli leader said.

But, his words have caused a row as Raiola grumbles.

"I thank De Laurentiis, but I don't know him. Furthermore, I can say that you don't make deals across the papers," he said.

"Is there a possibility that Mario leaves Inter? I will not make the same error as the president because I am not used to doing business via the press."
