The agent of AC Milan striker Mario Balotelli has sensationally floated the prospect of a move to Chelsea. Mino Raiola says Balotelli is in regular contact with Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho, having worked together at Inter Milan.

"Mourinho and Balotelli at Chelsea? They broke up well, they are always in contact, there is mutual respect," revealed Raiola.

"People can say many things about Balotelli, but they cannot say he is not a great striker.

"Mario to Chelsea? It could happen, but (Milan chief Adriano) Galliani obviously does not want that to happen."
