AC Milan are seeking a loan agreement for Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli.

The outburst prompted Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini to meet with Balotelli for crisis talks.

And reports in Italy today suggest that AC Milan are seriously considering making a loan move for the unsettled Italian striker.

They see him as the perfect strike partner for Alexandre Pato and Zlatan Ibrahimovic, however they are unlikely to have the funds to for a permanent deal.
