PSG striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic feels former Inter Milan teammate Mario Balotelli can fire Manchester City back into the title race. Ibra believes that Balotelli can inspire City to claw back the seven-point lead Manchester United currently hold over them in the Premier League title race.

"He is a special player and a special talent," he told the Daily Mail.

"Manchester City are already a way behind Manchester United in the Premier League - but if any player can retain the title for them it is Mario. All the class that Manchester City have I would still say Mario is the most capable."
