The Manchester City striker has been back in his native Italy for the birth of his daughter ahead of Sunday's derby with Manchester United.

The Rossoneri were said to be keen to bring the Italy international back to his homeland, according to media reports.

However, Berlusconi has moved quickly to deny the speculation, telling Sky Sport Italia: "My words have been misinterpreted. I do not dream about Balotelli at night.

"There are no negotiations going on because he will cost too much and we cannot afford him."

The 22-year-old has also been linked with a move back to his former club Inter Milan as well as champions Juventus, although City have always insisted he is not for sale.

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
