Whether you’ve had a fill of it or not, the only story most of today’s papers and websites are concentrating on is Mario Balotelli and the alleged interest of AC Milan.

Could the enigmatic City striker really be heading back to Italy? With so many stories about Mario on a daily basis, it’s hard to sort the wheat from the chaff – but there plenty out there.

The Sun’s Antony Kastrinakis and Richard Moriarty lead the way with their story:  “AC Milan look to have finally prised Mario Balotelli away from Manchester City.

 “The Premier League champs are expected to announce they have sold the hothead striker for around £17million today.


It is understood Milan could include former Spurs midfielder Kevin-Prince Boateng on top of that fee. Italian ace Balotelli threw a leaving party at his house for close pals last night


...The Sun...

“He told them he was off to the San Siro and gave away mementos from his controversial stay at the Etihad. City had been holding out for a much bigger return on the player they paid Inter £22m for in August 2010.”

It appears this story will run and run – well, at least for four more days!

Elsewhere the only story of any note links the Blues with a move for rising United Arab Emirates star – according to talkSPORT that is. They report: “After a move to City failed to materialise in August when Omar Abdulrahman was on trial, it seems they have not forgotten about him, with Roberto Mancini reportedly ready to renew his interest in the Al-Ain star.

“City may rue not doing more to snap him up, though, with German club Hamburg now said to be interested.”

Any genuine transfer deals will, of course, appear here on mcfc.co.uk first.
