Balotelli insists he is committed to Man City contract

Mario Balotelli insists he's committed to his contract at Manchester City.

City's pursuit of Wolfsburg striker Edin Dzeko has been suggested in some quarters as preparation for Balotelli's departure.

"I don't know exactly how long I will stay with City but I have the contract and I want to respect it," he told the Mail on Sunday. "I want to win the league with Manchester City and I think we can do it this season. We have the players.

"I want to repay Roberto Mancini, too. Since I was 17 he has been the most important coach in my career."

As for Dzeko, Balotelli insists: "I couldn't possibly say what it would mean for me if he comes. But I can tell you this; he is a really, really strong player."
