Agent expects Balotelli to remain with Man City long-term

The agent of Mario Balotelli says he's at Manchester City for the long haul.

There has been intense speculation over the striker's future after he had dinner with Milan Vice-President Adriano Galliani and confessed he supports the Rossoneri.

"Balotelli needs to go through an important journey in his career. He moved to England and will stay at Manchester City for a few years," agent Mino Raiola told Telelombardia.

"It is impossible he'll move to Milan in June. Almost impossible," added the representative.

"He went to City because Roberto Mancini strongly wanted him there and must thank the Coach for his faith in him, but now Mario is winning over everyone else in Manchester.

"His future does not depend on Mancini. Galliani may admire Balotelli, as he also liked him when he was at Inter and I spoke to Milan when Inter wanted to sell."
