AC Milan manager Massimiliano Allegri has said that the club will not be making a move for Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli, who has been linked with a move away from Eastlands in the last couple of months.

The 21-year-old Italian has become a major disruptive influence in the Premier league club, which has led to speculation that manager Roberto Mancini has finally lost his patience with the former Inter Milan star. Mario Balotelli arrived at Manchester city for £ 24 million in 2010. Even though he played a vital role in Manchester City winning the title this season, he almost was the reason for them losing the same.

It has been speculated in recent weeks that AC Milan will be interested in selling Robinho after the Brazilian has failed to recreate his magic from the last few seasons. The Brazilian forward has been linked with a return to his home country with former club Santos.

This would leave the space for another forward to arrive at the San Siro especially considering that influential players like Filippo Inzaghi have left the club in the summer. Milan are also looking at reducing the age of the squad, and the 21-year-old Mario Balotelli could be an ideal solution.

However, Massimiliano Allegri has ruled out making any bids for Balotelli. "Balotelli? No. Mario is not coming to Milan. I hope he matures because a footballer's career is short. He should not have regrets for the mistakes he has made," said Massimiliano Allegri in response to the speculation surrounding Balotelli.

After being warned of being left out of the Euro 2012 squad, Italy Football team manager Prandelli decided to take Balotelli to the major tournament due to the lack of high-profile strikers within the squad. Milan will be looking to build a team on Cassano next season.
