Man Utd had chance to sign Inter Milan sensation Balotelli

Manchester United attempted to land Italian superkid Mario Balotelli ahead of Inter Milan 18 months ago, it has been revealed.

DiarioSport says United invited Balotelli to trial at Old Trafford in 2006, only for Inter to snap up the then 15 year-old. The Ghana-born striker struck twice in midweek for Inter in their Coppa Italia victory over Juventus.
