Mario Balotelli - AC MilanMino Raiola, agent of AC Milan striker Mario Balotelli, has reportedly met with Galatasaray to discuss a possible deal for the player this winter.

The 23-year-old has been linked with a move away from the Rossoneri during the January transfer window due to his inconsistency on the pitch this season, though both the club and his agent have repeatedly denied rumours regarding his departure.

According to Turkish website, Raiola recently met with Gala executives to discuss the possibility of arranging an agreement for the Italian international this month, as the club’s coach Roberto Mancini is apparently still fond of the striker based on their previous time together at Manchester City.

The Diavolo are yet to receive any bids from Galatasaray for Super Mario, but some sources expect talks to begin once Milan vice president Adriano Galliani returns from Brazil.

Mario Balotelli has only been with AC Milan since joining from Manchester City during last season’s January transfer window and has scored a total of 18 goals in his 25 Serie A appearances thus far. VIP Lounge
