The agent of Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli is in talks with AC Milan.

The Sun says a bid in the region of £24million could be enough to persuade City to part with Balotelli this month.

Balotelli's representative Mino Raiola was spotted at the Italian club's offices, sparking speculation they were taking the first steps towards a deal.

City boss Roberto Mancini has finally lost patience with Balotelli after a training ground bust-up with the striker this month.
