City are understood to have fined the Italian striker two weeks' wages - a figure reported to be around £340,000 - for his lack of discipline on the field last season.
The 22-year-old was unhappy with the penalty and his lawyers were due to appear at a Premier League tribunal on Wednesday to appeal against the sanctions.
However, the issue has been resolved without the need for tribunal and the club are now keen to move on from the affair.
A brief statement from City read: "After amicable talks between the parties, as a sign of respect for Roberto Mancini, the supporters and the club, Mario Balotelli has chosen to accept a two week fine levied upon him by the club and withdraw his disciplinary appeal.
"Mario remains available for selection for all forthcoming fixtures."
