Police arrest a man for allegedly trying to blackmail Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli.

A man has been arrested and bailed over an alleged blackmail of Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli.

The unnamed male is believed to have used photographs of the Italian forward taken in a nightclub as a way of making financial gain.

"Police are investigating after an allegation of blackmail was made by a Premier League football club," said a Greater Manchester Police spokesman.

"A man has been arrested and bailed. Inquiries are ongoing."

The incident is said to have taken place just hours of Balotelli had featured in City's 1-0 loss to Swansea City.
