The agent of Mario Balotelli is adamant the striker is staying with Manchester City.

Balotelli has again courted controversy this week after snubbing City's awards night and yesterday's FA Cup parade.

"Mario Balotelli remains 2000 per cent at Manchester City," insisted Mino Raiola.

"I know there is a sympathy for Mario from Adriano Galliani and AC Milan, but he has never officially asked for him.

"They would be his first choice, though we do not close other doors."
