DvNsports: Balotelli says he is happy at AC Milan

Mario Balotelli

Mario Balotelli insists that he is "happy" at AC Milan amidst continued speculation that he could be shown the exit door at San Siro this summer.

The Italy international was infamously labelled a "rotten apple" by Rossoneri owner Silvio Berlusconi before the forward's arrival at the Giuseppe Meazza from Manchester City last year, while it was also reported in December that the former Italian Prime Minister had demanded that the 23-year-old be sold during the winter transfer window.

Milan denied the latter claim and while speculation is now rife that Balotelli will be offloaded this summer to fund moves for other players, the man himself says he is going nowhere, revealing that he is enjoying life under new boss Clarence Seedorf.

"I have spoken with him about situations with the team and the things that I must do on the field," the Azzurri ace told Marca. "I'm happy.

Seedorf is a great champion and it's a pleasure to listen to him. He was also a great player. I hope that everything goes well."

Meanwhile, Balotelli confirmed that he would be cheering on City in their last-16 clash with Barcelona.

"I hope that Manchester City beat Barcelona," he confessed. "But it will be difficult for my ex-team-mates as Barcelona are one of the favourites."
