Mario Balotelli: The striker was in tears after Italy's record breaking 4-0 defeat to Spain in the Euro 2012 final
Mario Balotelli has had a £200million price tag slapped on him by his agent after reports in Italy linked him with a move away from Manchester City.
In a mixed Euro 2012 for the striker, he scored two goals against Germany to put Italy into the final where they were crushed 4-0 by Spain.
These goals won the 21-year-old many admirers back in Italy and both AC Milan, the team he supports, and his former club Inter are reported to be interested in signing him this summer.
But his agent Mino Raiola has played down any talk of the controversial striker walking out on the newly crowned Premier League champions.
"I'm 200% certain that Mario will not return to Italy at least while I'm his agent," Raiola told Sky Italia.
"I have always said that Mario Balotelli is one player that could become the strongest in the world. He is probably amongst the strongest in Europe.
"How much is he worth? He is worth what the market says, he is one that can make a difference.
"In the actual market I don't think there is a value for him but if I had to give a price I would say he is worth €250million (£201.3m).
"I say this to give a figure but you would have to ask the City owner (Sheikh Mansour) how much he is worth."
