Manchester: The agent of Mario Balotelli has revealed that the forward will likely end his career in Italy but insists that both his client and Manchester City want him to remain at Eastlands for the time being.
Balotelli's future in England is currently the subject of much speculation, with City boss Roberto Mancini admitting that the Premier League outfit will probably try to sell the striker in the summer after his dismissal against Arsenal.
The Italy international's representative has now flown to Manchester for talks with Mancini but he insists that the purpose of his visit is not to thrash out a transfer which would see the player return home.
"Balotelli will end his career in Italy, but at the moment it's better for him to stay at Manchester City," agent Mino Raiola told Sky Sport Italia.
"Manchester City don't want to sell him. Mario misses Italy but this still isn't the right moment to go back. I'm just here in Manchester now to talk with Mancini about Balotelli. We're not going to talk about the transfer market." Balotelli arrived in Manchester from Inter in 2010 and has been repeatedly linked with a move to AC Milan.
