Raiola plays down Italy return talks for Balotelli

Football agent, Mino Raiola has ruled out a return back to Italy for his contractor, Mario Balotelli.

The 24- year old has struggled to find form since he made his 16m pounds move to
Liverpool and has been linked with a move back to Italy.

Raiola also rejects talks of a move back to former Italian club side Inter Milan.

“A return to Inter is impossible. Not because of Mancini, but for other reasons which aren’t worth talking about,” Raiola said.

“Even Napoli [is out of the question]. Mario will not return to Italy.”

Raiola added: “He is lacking goals and he doesn’t run well, but this is a time that must pass. He now has this injury and we hope he recovers as soon as possible.

“The relationship with the team? It is perfect, the English journalists must not be part of his life.”
