Adding Mario Balotelli Would Make Inter Serie A Candidates for Years to Come

Mario Balotelli appears to need a change.

Roberto Mancini evidently doesn't trust the Italian striker and Sunday was further proof of this when he hauled off the 22-year-old after just 10 minutes into the second half.

Balotelli is often criticised by the British media for his attitude and inability to produce on a regular basis for City, but the real question should be whether the former Inter Milan player trusts his manager anymore.

Mancini's management of Balotelli has been appalling, in truth, due to his inability to motivate the striker and provide him with a consistent spell in the first team.

It has been reported that Inter Milan installed a "first option" if, or when, Manchester City decide to sell up.

Balotelli might be an Milan fan, but it's his former club Inter that could prove to be an equally good move to reignite his career in time for the 2014 World Cup.

The core squad is already there, and Balotelli's added athleticism and ability to win a match on his own with a moment of genius could tip them over the edge and allow them to rival Juve for the title for a considerable amount of time.

Diego Milito could form a potent duo in a diamond formation with Balotelli, or he could fit into a wide role in a 4-3-3 to accommodate Rodrigo Palacio or Antonio Cassano

It is a strike force that would rival anything in European football and while El Principe might be the veteran of the side and the leader of the attack, Balotelli's integration into the lineup would be guaranteed.

And that's what it boils down to, really—Balotelli stringing together numerous starts in order to show off his incredible skills that will eventually take him to the pinnacle of the game.
