Mario Balotelli's agent Mino Raiola insists that the striker does not want to leave Manchester City despite falling down the pecking order this season.

Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli has no intention of leaving the Premier League champions any time soon, according to his agent.

The 22-year-old has been linked with a move to Italian clubs AC Milan and Inter Milan after a disappointing start to the 2012-13 season.

"He doesn't want to leave," The Guardian quotes his agent Mino Raiola as saying.

"There's no player who is ever happy with not playing in a game, but he accepts it. It's all part of the game.

"There is no [transfer to] Italy and no plans to go there. He'll work until the end of his contract."

Balotelli joined City from Inter in 2010.
