The manager and brother of Inter striker Mario Balotelli has told the press that the player will not be moving to Arsenal or any other club, despite rampant speculation.
"Mario has a contact that does not expire until 2013 and he will not be moving away from Inter," Corrado Balotelli was quoted as saying by news agency Ansa.
Earlier today, it was reported that Premier League giants Arsenal had made a€30 million bid for the starlet, but coach Jose Mourinho has responded with a request that Cesc Fabregas be included in the deal.
The player's agent seems to have dismissed the possibility of his brother and client leaving the Giuseppe Meazza in the near future with his statement. Inter President Massimo Moratti made similar comments, explaining that 'Super Mario' was not for sale.
Balotelli has often had disciplinary problems and on occasion been left out of the team by Mourinho for key matches. It remains to be seen whether he will be included in the squad that faces Juventus on Saturday evening.
