Manchester City's interest in AC Milan striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic is again sparking speculation of a move home for Mario Balotelli. Balotelli has made no secret of his wish to one day pull on the Rossoneri shirt and Telelombardia says Ibra's sudden disillusionment has sparked the prospect of a swap move.

Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani is prepared to do a deal for the Swede, who admitted last week he had "grown tired of football".

If City make their interest concrete, Galliani will attempt to strike a straight swap involving Edin Dzeko. However, if City refuse, he will demand a major cash component plus Balotelli be included for Milan to part with Ibrahimovic.
