Fiorentina coach Cesare Prandelli has laughed off talk of a move for Inter Milan firebrand Mario Balotelli.

Adrian Mutu is suspended until October 28 after failing a drugs test and It is reported that Inter castaway Balotelli could be brought in as a replacement.

Prandelli responded: "That's fantasy football. Balotelli has very high wages, so talking about him would be throwing any old name into the ring just to excite the fans. That's not right."
