Inter Milan coach Andrea Stramaccioni has refused to discuss speculation linking Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli with a return to the Serie A giants.

Balotelli has been tipped for a summer exit from Roberto Mancini's side after he found himself at the centre of controversy once again during Sunday's 1-0 loss at Arsenal when he was sent off for two bookable offences.

He could also face retrospective punishment from the Football Association after escaping censure for a shocking first-half challenge on Gunners midfielder Alex Song.

Mancini said after the defeat, which all but ended City's Premier League title hopes, he does not intend to play the 21-year-old again this term, and admitted he would "probably" look to sell him at the end of the season.

Sunday's incident was the latest in a string of controversies, both on and off the pitch, that Balotelli has found himself involved in since joining City from Inter almost two years ago.

The Italy striker has been linked with a return to Inter but coach Stramaccioni was reluctant to comment on the rumours.

"I don't want to talk about a player who is not mine, seven games before the end of the league," he said.

"You must ask technical director Marco Branca and president Massimo Moratti.

"Of course he's a player who plays at an international level. But I only want to talk about my players."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
