Young Italian unharmed after car collision
New Manchester City signing Mario Balotelli is uninjured after being involved in a car crash on Saturday morning, police have confirmed.
The 20-year-old Italian, who arrived at Eastlands from Inter Milan for £25million earlier this month, was at the wheel of his Audi A8 when it collided with another car in Manchester.
Balotelli was unhurt in the crash but was breathalysed in accordance with standard practice.
Police arrived at the scene in Chester Road, Hulme and spoke to Balotelli and the driver of a BMW and checked the striker's documentation, which was all in order.
Police are no longer investigating.
A Greater Manchester Police spokesman said: "At 9.45am today we were called to Chester Road in Hulme to reports of a two-car collision.
"Officers attended and found a black BMW had been in collision with an Audi A8
"Nobody was injured.
"Both cars were damaged and removed from the scene."
Balotelli was able to train with his team-mates later on Saturday, but he will not travel to their Premier League game at Sunderland on Sunday because of an existing knee injury.
Manchester City have declined to comment.
