AC Milan to lure away Premier League bad boy?

AC Milan look set to capitalise on Manchester City’s bad boy striker Mario Balotelli’s unhappiness and lure him away in January.

In a move reported by sportinglife, the Football Transfer Tavern has broken out into debate on what has otherwise been a quiet day. The Italian has always divided opinion and there have been many a spilt pint from heated debates surrounding his future. Given the fact he has only started one of City’s last eight games, he could favour a move back to his homeland with Milan in January.

As we gather around the dart board to discuss the latest move – which has been given its strongest hint at happening yet, with AC Milan owner Silvio Berlusconi responding to a mooted Balotelli bid with “No, it’s not a dream. I never dream,” it seems a move back to his homeland could be on the cards for the forward who has just a single goal to his name this campaign.

One thing we can all agree on is the wealth of attacking talent at the Etihad, and with the Rossoneri struggling in Serie A this term, a link up between Balotelli and fellow countryman El Shaarawy at the San Siro is as fine a prospective partnership as is our beer and burger deal that our punters go crazy for.

Of course this is football and nothing is harder to predict than Mario – well unless you count what accent Joey Barton is going to use in his next interview, so anything is possible.

What do you think? Should City hope the bad boy will come good or should they take the money and run right to Suarez? Vote in our polls below.
