Wenger rejects Balotelli-Arsenal rumours

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has said Mario Balotelli won’t be returning to the Premier League with his side, according to the Guardian.

Balotelli had been mentioned as a target for the Gunners and the speculation was fuelled both by the vice-president of Milan, Barbara Berlusconi, and Balotelli’s agent, Mino Raiola. “Balotelli is a great player,” Berlusconi said on the official Milan website, “But the way I see it, I don’t believe that someone can be irreplaceable. We will see what happens.”


Raiola, meanwhile, said: “Arsenal are a fantastic club. Only eight or 10 clubs in the world can afford Mario Balotelli - like all premium players, and he is one of the greatest. Anything is possible.”


But speaking on beIn Sport, Wenger has poured cold water on the gossip. “We cannot believe absolutely everything that is on the internet or in the papers,” he said. “Sometimes it is created by agents or by press who need news. But in this case, it’s not true.”


Balotelli previously played for Manchester City, winning the FA Cup and Premier League title during his time at the club. He moved to Milan in January 2013 and appeared for Italy at the World Cup, scoring the winning goal against England, but couldn’t help the Azzurri get out of Group D.
