Balotelli rubbishes exit speculation

Mario Balotelli says he is happy at Manchester City and is not seeking a return to Italy.

• Santon: Balotelli unsure over future
• Mancini: Mario must realise potential
• Fantasy League: Pick your new squad

Balotelli had been regularly linked with a move to AC Milan, among other Serie A sides, after a difficult first year in England following his 2010 move from Inter, but he has appeared more settled in his second season.

Davide Santon, his former Inter team-mate, recently revealed that Balotelli had expressed occasional doubts as to whether he will stay at City long-term, but the Italy striker says media speculation linking him with an exit is wide of the mark.

"The newspapers are saying that I want to get away from Manchester but I've never spoken to them," he told Radio Radio. "They can say what they want, but I'm in Manchester, I am under contract with City and until the right time, will not talk about a new contract."

He added: "[The Premier League] has been a new experience, even if at first it was difficult, but if I have to tell the whole truth now then is that I am feeling really good."

Balotelli also described his relationship with Roberto Mancini as "great".
