The agent of Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli insists the youngster is committed to his contract.

Balotelli's agent has denied the striker wants to return to Serie A following the arrival of Edin Dzeko at Eastlands.

"Balotelli in Italy? I think the English league is excellent for him, he can continue growing," said Mino Raiola.

"The project is based on him and the club has no problems.

"I think he has understood it is important to affirm himself in the Premier League and play a part of Manchester City's history.

"Maybe he will go back in June, but not 2011, nor 2012."
