Agent on Ibra and Balotelli

Zlatan Ibrahimovic will end his career at Milan and Mario Balotelli “realises Manchester isn’t as bad as he thought.”

Agent Mino Raiola spoke to Sky Sport Italia about some of his top clients in the world of calcio, starting from Ibra.

“He has no belly-ache about staying with the Rossoneri, as he has always said he’ll end his career at Milan.

“There is a very strong rapport with the club, directors and teammates. Therefore, all reports of problems are untrue.

“It’s a shame for me, as it means I won’t be able to hold any more negotiations for him!” joked Raiola of the well-travelled ex-Ajax, Juventus, Inter and Barcelona striker.

“I was the one who advised Milan to go for Carlos Tevez, as Ibra has always said he wanted to play alongside great champions.”

Raiola also represents Manchester City star Balotelli, who has made no secret of the fact he supports Milan.

“Will Balotelli be Ibra’s future teammate? That would be great, as it’d mean Ibra will carry on playing for many years.

“Mario has no intention of leaving City. He has started to understand certain systems on how to get along there.

“Strangely for him, he is admitting that Manchester isn’t as bad as he thought or said. Is Milan a better city? It depends on your point of view, but right now Manchester is better for him.”
