Inter Milan striker Mario Balotelli has sparked a Manchester derby for his services.

Sky Sports Italia says while Manchester City have made a firm approach to Inter for the controversial forward, United have informed the Serie A champs they will match any offer their neighbours make.

Balotelli has declared in the past week he is willing to leave Inter for England this summer - and would welcome the chance to play for his former Inter coach Roberto Mancini at Manchester City.
