Italian duo AC Milan and Inter Milan will reportedly battle for the signature of Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli in the summer.

The pair are preparing £20m bids for the 21-year-old, according to The Mirror, with the controversial striker likely to leave England at the end of the season.

It is understood that senior figures at City have become increasingly frustrated with Balotelli's actions, with City slipping eight points behind Manchester United in the Premier League table.

Balotelli has scored 17 goals for City this season.
