Inter Milan president Massimo Moratti has confirmed talks with Manchester City over the sale of Mario Balotelli.

Inter and City are in talks over a £30million deal for the teenager, who rowed with Jose Mourinho last season before the Special One left for Real Madrid.

New boss Rafa Benitez wants the cash to raid his old club Liverpool for Javier Mascherano.

Inter president Massimo Moratti said: "We're in talks with City."

City boss Roberto Mancini gave the striker, 19, his debut at Inter and his team-mates would be happy to see him go.

Defender Ivan Cordoba said: "My advice is if there are offers he should change his attitude, it might help with his motivation because he doesn't have any."

Javier Zanetti said: "No one disputes his quality, if he behaves."
