Inter To Offer Arsenal Mario Balotelli For Cesc Fabregas - Report

Balotelli for Fabregas is the latest idea being brought into play by Italian media...
Inter are about to throw a spanner into Barcelona's works for Arsenal ace Cesc Fabregas as they will offer Mario Balotelli in return for the midfielder.

Leggo reports Inter could turn off their penchant for Javier Mascherano and sign Fabregas instead.

The latest developments will cause a stir at Camp Nou as Barcelona's eagerness to sign Fabregas has been well documented.

And while Balotelli's agent Mino Raiola has been churning out every club name apart from the Gunners on an hourly basis, Massimo Moratti has clear ideas on where to send the striker.

It's no secret that Arsene Wenger likes Balotelli and his expertise with young players can offer a solution for all involved in a deal.

The next step is for the Nerazzurri to approach Arsenal and discover whether their heads will be turned by the proposal.

Such a development could put the pressure on Barcelona, who are desperate to land their former pupil.

On Monday Raiola said Manchester City had made a bid for the striker, but failed to specify the conditions.

That was followed by a number of papers claiming it was a €30 million bid that was rejected because Inter want €40m.
