Raiola is furious with the way Balotelli has been treated since Italy's World Cup elimination.
â€śCriticism of Mario is normal, as it looks as if the Nazionale had only one player: Mario Balotelli,â€ť said the representative. â€śHe was a gentleman. Everyone attacked him, nobody came to his defence, not even the Federation.
â€śI thought Balotelli was part of Italy, but evidently I was wrong.â€ť
â€śIt is fundamental for Mario to play where they care for him and at Milan some do love him, some donâ€™t.
â€śI think Barbara Berlusconi is right when she says nobody is off the market. Only Milan can sell Balotelli, as he has a contract with the Rossoneri.
â€śIf they donâ€™t want to keep him anymore, then they just need to call me into the offices and Iâ€™m ready to discuss it with them.
â€śDo you think thereâ€™s a stronger striker in Italy than Balotelli? Mario has a contract with Milan, the club called me and said heâ€™s not for sale.
