After a turbulent week in the life of Mario Balotelli which saw him score in two friendlies and get benched for disrespectful conduct, Mario Balotelli has suggested further more he is looking for a move away from Manchester City.

According to, Mario Balotelli does not like the City of Manchester.

After moving from Inter last window, "Super Mario", as he is referred to, has never really won over the fans or even settled with his team mates for that matter.

Balotelli was quoted as saying "I am not feeling well in Manchester. I am happy with the coach and with my team-mates, however, I do not like the city of Manchester."

Earlier in the week, City considered offering Balotelli to Roma on a one-year loan. With the arrival of Aguero, it would allow for some extra playing time for the Italian, who will most likely be benched in favour of the Argentinian.

Although interest from Italy is definitely present, perhaps Roma will not be the final destination of Mario. In his interview, he also dropped a hint that he would like to play at AC Milan. Balotelli said when asked about the recent rumours about a move to the European Giants "Milan are a great club. We can talk about it in the future."

At only 20, Balotelli has a massive future ahead of him. A one-year loan move to Italy may calm the nerves of the youngster as well as give him some extra playing time. One thing is for certain, though: If he doesn't learn to control his temper, it will ultimately lead to his downfall as a footballer.

Last season, Balotelli made 28 appearances for City, scoring 10 goals in the process.
