Roberto Mancini is ready to sell Mario Balotelli to either AC or Inter Milan in order to raise funds for the January transfer window.
Manchester City's new sporting director Txiki Begiristain has reportedly told Mancini he will have to sell if he wants funds to strengthen the squad when the transfer window re-opens.
With Inter Milan and rivals AC having both expressed an interest in Balotelli, Mancini is finally ready to end the striker's tumultuous two-year spell at the Etihad Stadium.
Inter manager Andrea Stramaccioni has admitted he is a fan of the Italy international, while AC chief executive Adriano Galliani says he would love to have Balotelli at the San Siro.
"I have a profound love for Mario Balotelli, but many loves in life don't always end well," Galliani said
Mancini has seemingly had enough of the the 22-year-old's antics, leaving him out of the squad for Sunday's 2-1 win over Tottenham, while he found himself on the bench for the Champions League clash with Ajax.
Balotelli is thought to be open to the possibility of a return to Italy and City's £20million price tag is unlikely to put off prospective suitors.
