Mancini urges Man City board to bring him Balotelli

Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini has urged his board to move for Inter Milan firebrand Mario Balotelli. The Times says the 19-year-old forward has been involved in a series of controversies under José Mourinho's management at Inter, most recently by throwing his shirt on the ground in response to jeers from fans at the Champions League semi-final, first-leg victory over Barcelona last month.

Balotelli has had a series of disciplinary problems since breaking into Inter's first team as a 17-year-old, but Mancini believes the forward's raw talent would make him an ideal signing and that his personality may prove less disruptive in England than in Italy.
