Cape Town - Mario Balotelli's agent has rejected the idea that the striker could make a return to the Serie A.

Mino Raiola has confirmed that Liverpool striker Mario Balotelli is not looking to exit the English Premiership club according to theDaily Mail.

Balotelli signed for Liveprool in the summer transfer window for a fee of  £16million but has struggled to adapt to the tactical requirements at the Anfield club.

Mino Raiola told Gazzetta dello Sport that Balotelli would not be linking up with former manager Roberto Mancini  at Inter Milan. 

Raiola said: "A return to Inter is impossible. Not for Mancini, but for other reasons of which it isn't worth talking about."

"Even Naples. Mario does not return in Italy."

Balotelli did not travel with the Liverpool side for Sunday's 3-1 loss at Crystal Palace. The 24-year-old suffered a hamstring injury in training which forced him out of the clash.

"He lacks the goals, doesn't run well but it is a time that must pass. He now has this injury and we hope to have it resolved as soon as possible.

'The relationship with the team? It is perfect, the English journalists must not be part of his life." added Raiola.
