The agent of Mario Balotelli has rubbished claims the Manchester City striker wants to leave.

It's been claimed Balotelli is suffering terrible homesickness and is desperate to return to Italy - preferably to AC Milan.

But his agent, Mino Raiola, completely denies the claims.

"No comment," Raiola told TMW. "I have nothing to say. For me the reports are just c***, Balotelli did not say anything."
