Manchester United first-team coach Rene Meulensteen claims that Sir Alex Ferguson would never try to sign 'frustrating' Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli.

Manchester United first-team coach Rene Meulensteen has revealed that manager Sir Alex Ferguson would never be tempted to bring Mario Balotelli to Old Trafford.

The controversial Manchester City striker has hit the headlines on more than one occasion since arriving in the North West from Inter Milan in 2010.

Reports have suggested that the 21-year-old may leave the Premier League title chasers in the summer, but Meultensteen has claimed that Balotelli has "no chance" of ever playing for the Red Devils.

"City do not have a well-balanced team. They only have individuals who play for themselves," Meulensteen told Voetbal International. "You can see that City lack the right team spirit.

"There is no chance of Balotelli playing for Manchester United. A player who gets up to the antics he does has no place at our club.

"I don't believe that Sir Alex would sign a player like Balotelli. We shouldn't get in people like him - they only bring frustration."

Despite rumours of a possible exit from the Etihad Stadium, the frontman's agent Mino Raiola stated that Balotelli will stay in the blue half of Manchester.
