Moratti says no player is greater than the club.
He said: "Is it a defeat for Inter? Maybe so, we won't know until later. Balotelli is a talent that, for myself, is yet to deliver 100%.
"But for all his talent , he was not so indispensable in the achievement of the team.
"Balotelli remains a great talent, but for us it is almost an obligation to let him leave this way."
