Manchester City target Mario Balotelli remains tight-lipped on his future at Inter Milan.

Man City target not revealing whether he wants Eastlands move

Inter Milan striker Mario Balotelli remains tight-lipped on his future but the Manchester City target did reveal he knows where he wants his future to lie. Balotelli has been the subject of an ongoing transfer saga between Inter and City, with the Premier League outfit still unable to agree a fee with the European champions over a fee for the 19-year-old. The Italian international admits he has already decided whether he eyes a move to Eastlands to play for former Inter boss Roberto Mancini, but he is not willing to reveal his thoughts. "What should I say, I know what should happen but I don't want to say it," he said.


The controversial Balotelli complained that journalists are the cause of his troubles, the most recent of which was a police ticking-off for firing a toy gun in public. The pacy striker fell out of favour with his then-Inter boss Jose Mourinho last season for his poor discipline, while he also angered his own fans after throwing his jersey on the floor following the UEFA Champions League semi-final clash against Barcelona. He did not help his cause either being photographed wearing an AC Milan shirt in a bar. But following his debut for the full Italian national team in Tuesday's 1-0 defeat in London against Ivory Coast, the forward of Ghanaian descent pointed his finger at the press. "At 20 years of age you can't be a complete man, at 20 you're starting to mature," Balotelli, who turns 20 on Thursday, told Sky Sport Italia. "It's difficult but when you start doing this sport you know that you could become famous and you have to be ready. "With me, (journalists) are always looking for a scoop. "When I shot a pistol I did something stupid but then journalists blow everything out of proportion."
