The agent of Mario Balotelli says Manchester City is a good move for him.

Mino Raiola oversaw Balotelli's switch to City from Inter Milan and also assisted in Robinho's move to AC Milan.

He said: "Negotiations are made of ups and downs. All of these talks made me feel pessimistic and optimistic as time wore on. You need to stay cool to find a positive conclusion.

"I am happy that Balotelli went to England, as he needed a bit of a different experience abroad. Mario is relaxed and now has to focus on playing for Manchester City so he can grow."
