Agent says Man City's Balotelli will move to Napoli

The agent of Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli believes a move to Napoli will happen.

Mino Raiola has revealed his client's desire to one day return to the peninsula and play for Napoli.

"Mario has received compliments for the last month because he is becoming an important player for the whole team, not only because of his goals, but because he also assists and he is being appreciated as a component.

"For me, Balotelli can become one of the top three players in the world, he is maturing as a player and it helps as a player.

"Mario loves City. Future with Napoli? Napoli has an audience that is so amazing that everyone wants to play for these people. The difference is made by the public - Ibrahimovic also told me that one day he would like to wear the blue shirt.

"Great players convey a warmth to playing at Napoli. Mario has reiterated to me on many occasions that he wants to come and play in Napoli.

"Have I spoken with [Aurelio] De Laurentiis? We had a nice meeting in London and we talked about it, but then at that meeting it was decided there would be a follow-up.

"I want to clarify and reiterate that there is no chance that over the next four years Mario will play with Napoli."
