Tueart wrote in The Sun: "If I was Mancini I would let him go â€” itâ€™s just the right decision for Manchester City and Balotelli at this moment.
"I still believe heâ€™s a top player but weâ€™ve been talking for too long about what he can do and we still havenâ€™t really seen it.
"You worry that the next problem is just around the corner and you wonder whether heâ€™s worth all the bother.
"When Mancini talks about Mario and what potential heâ€™s got, I know what heâ€™s talking about. But if he keeps hold of him in January it will be a risk.
"You canâ€™t help but feel him being there is detrimental to the team â€” everyone saw how well City played without him at Newcastle on Saturday."
