Juventus pushing to hijack AC Milan deal for Man City's Balotelli

Juventus are pushing to wreck AC Milan plans for Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli.

The Sun says the misfit striker, 22, travelled with the Manchester City squad for tonight's clash at rock-bottom QPR.

He then hopes to fly out to Italy tomorrow morning to complete his return to Serie A for an initial fee of around £17million.

City, though, insist he will only do this if their asking price is met.

Milan are prepared to fork out £17m, but that would include add-ons and is close to what City chiefs are looking for.

Juventus have now emerged as a strong contender for his signature, with more talks due to take place with them today.
