Manchester City appear to be closing in on the signing of Inter Milan's teenage striker Mario Balotelli
Manchester City are at time of writing 5/1 to win the Premier League title and 1/2 for a top four finish with Victor Chandler, who are giving new customers £125 free when opening an account today
As of Monday evening, big-spending City and Serie A giants Inter were yet to agree a fee for the 19-year-old, although reports out of Italy suggest the Eastlands club will pay around £25million to secure the Italian, who would become the club's fifth major signing of the summer.
Betting on Monday night was suspended on Balotelli joining City, however the young forward's agent, Mino Raiola, has insisted a deal not a foregone conclusion.
"Balotelli hasn't signed anything with Manchester City and I doubt that anything will be agreed in the next few days," he said on Monday.
Although City need to trim their squad to 25 players for the new season, that has not stopped them from bringing in Aleksander Kolarov, David Silva, Yaya Toure and Jerome Boateng.
James Milner and Fernando Torres have also been linked with moves to Eastlands, while should Balotelli not join the club, boss Roberto Mancini could step up his attempts to sign Wolfsburg striker Edin Dzeko.
