The duo had a number of clashes when they were at Inter Milan, but Balotelli insists that he has a huge amount of respect for his former manager.
"Of course I would like to play under Jose again. In my first days at Inter we had some problems, but then it turned into a mutual respect, and now we have a real friendship," The Mirror quotes him as saying.
"It is never boring playing under Jose. When you are in Mourinho's team, it is a family and he coaches on the principal that if all is well with the family it doesn't matter what is going on outside the team.
"I said when I left Manchester that the fans were so good to me that I couldn't see myself playing for another team in England. I got great support from the Manchester City fans during my time there and I will always respect them."
Balotelli has scored 12 goals for Milan this season.
