Mario Balotelli's agent has quashed transfer talk linking new Manchester City signing with a move to AC Milan.
Balotelli joined City at the end of the transfer window and made a scoring debut in their Europa League victory over FC Timisoara. But he also picked up a knee injury in that game and now faces six weeks on the sidelines following surgery.
The former Inter Milan striker is interesting their city rivals Milan, with chief executive Adriano Galliani admitting he would "like to have Balotelli at Milan", and that the player was interested too.
Balotelli's agent, Mino Raiola, told Sky Italia: "Milan? Let's think about reality. Balotelli is a Manchester City player and so he cannot follow this fantasy wanted by everyone.
"He has to think about doing well for the years set out in his contract. Then if there is a will to sell him we will speak. Never say never? I have always said you cannot exclude anything. Tomorrow he could go to Milan, or join Real Madrid, Juventus or even return to Inter...
"But to say today that in one, two or three years he will head to Milan is wrong."
Balotelli had earlier said: "The voices on Milan? I like what Galliani said, I am pleased as Milan are a strong side."
