Manchester City coach Angelo Gregucci says that striker Mario Balotelli can 'recover' his dispute with manager Roberto Mancini but says that he is unsure whether he will stay at the club.

Manchester City coach Angelo Gregucci has suggested that striker Mario Balotelli's future is currently up in the air following a latest disagreement with manager Roberto Mancini.

The 22-year-old controversial forward has been linked with an exit from the Etihad Stadium after he was dropped from the side that defeated Tottenham Hotspur 2-1 on Sunday.

"Mancini has chosen to give a signal, it is his right to make choices," Gregucci told Italy's Sky Sport 24.

"Perhaps during the past week, something was missing, but [Balotelli] is ready to take back the shirt of Manchester City. Will he remain? It's not for me to say, I only know that [the situation] is clearly recoverable."

A possible Balotelli departure has also been fuelled following reports that the Premier League champions are ready to lodge a £40m bid for Liverpool striker Luis Suarez.
