Inter Milan boss Mourinho wants to keep Arsenal target Balotelli

Inter Milan boss Jose Mourinho insists he's not planning to sell striker Mario Balotelli.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger had scouts posted to check on Balotelli for Inter's 5-0 win at Genoa.

The 19-year-old produced a sensational performance, scoring one of the goals, but Mourinho has not been too impressed with his attitude in recent days.

"This doesn't mean he's already a phenomenon only because he played a really good match with Genoa," said Mourinho. "To tell the truth he played a really great game and then he had a really bad working week.

"I value a player for what he does on the pitch but also for the job he does during the week."
