Chelsea and Manchester City are being linked with Inter Milan striker Mario Balotelli.

Tuttosport says despite an uneasy truce being settled last week between Balotelli and Jose Mourinho, the Inter coach has been told by his board they're ready to back him should he want to sell the youngster.

Chelsea, City and Barcelona are now heading the queue to land Balotelli, with England the preferred destination for Inter.

Inter president Massimo Moratti hopes to use the cash raised to fund a bid for either Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard or Arsenal's Cesc Fabregas.
