Mario Balotelli agent claims Chelsea interest

Mario Balotelli agent claims Chelsea interest

The agent of misfit striker Mario Balotelli has told reporters that Jose Mourinho is interested in his client and is hopeful a deal to bring the Italian international to Stamford Bridge can be completed next summer.

Balotelli, formerly of Manchester City, is currently enjoying a spell with AC Milan but is known to be eager to return to England sometime in the future.

The striker has reportedly been in contact with Chelsea representatives already and the player's agent Mino Raiola said: "Balotelli and Mourinho could be reunited because they know each other and they didn’t leave each other with hate.

“There was a not very nice incident between them, but they parted company on good terms. They have remained in contact and there is mutual respect.

“I know Milan Vice-President Adriano Galliani will not agree, but Mario is a great striker. That is for certain and he could perhaps be that at Chelsea.”
