Manchester City told the media that they were confident of confirming the signing of Mario Balotelli in the next few days after agreeing a deal for £23m.
After falling out with Jose Mourinho and new coach Rafa Benetiz appeared resigned to losing him. Rafa said:
‘The club decide the transfers I adapt,’
‘Do I fear being remembered in a few years as the coach who let Balotelli go? I repeat: I do not control the market. One player doesn’t make a team and Inter have many strong players.’
After demanding £34m, it looks like the deal of £23m has been agreed by both parties, so Mario will be flying out to England to take a fitness test, in which he will be expecting to pass.
