Balotelli reveals talks with Milan duo
Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli has admitted he has been in contact with AC Milan and former club Inter as the transfer season swings into action.
However, Balotelli, who has made as many headlines off the pitch as he has on it this season, says that despite staying in touch with the two Serie A sides, he has no plans to leave Eastlands.
The Italian striker is quoted as saying in The People: "Inter's president Massimo Moratti said he would take me back in an instant. I thank him, but I don't want to leave Manchester City right now.
"I am not thinking about returning to Italy for the time being, even though I have already spoken with AC Milan and Inter.
"As for Napoli, I like the city of Naples. But there are other teams in Spain and in England that attract me."
Balotelli, 21, has been in top form this season, with the Italy international scoring six times in 17 Premier League appearances.
Manchester City can move three points clear at the top of the Premier League with a victory over Sunderland on New Year's Day.
