“We are always interested in good players,” Mancini said in reference to the 19-year-old. “If Inter decide to sell, we will be there.”
The striker who scored and assisted a total of 19 goals in Italy last season has revealed that he is flattered to be linked with a move away from the club, specifically naming United as a great club.
“Roberto Mancini? He’s a great coach, I debuted in Serie A with him because he is a great friend,” he said. “If he and Ferguson want me, it means I’m not as bad as I thought. United is a great club. They have not seen the real Balotelli, for sure I need to learn and achieve more goals. I want to win the Golden Ball in 2011. As for the future, I always say I don’t know.”
