According to Friday's edition of Gazzetta dello Sport, AC Milan, Inter, and Juventus are all interested in acquiring the services of Manchester City man Mario Balotelli.
The enigmatic striker's agent, Mino Raiola, told Sky Sport Italia earlier in the week that his client "costs as much as the Mona Lisa" in a statement that cast doubt on a homecoming for the Italy international in January, but the Gazzetta insists the three traditional giants of Serie A are all contenders for his signature.
AC Milan President Silvio Berlusconi has made clear that the Rossoneri are keen on the 22 year-old, and recently hinted at a potential move when he referred to Super Mario's potential capture as "no dream". Balotelli is known to have been a childhood fan of the Diavolo, a topic which came to the fore in March 2010 when he famously accepted and donned a Milan jersey emblazoned with his name on Italian comedy programme Striscia La Notizia whilst contracted with heated rivals Inter.
It is rumored that the Nerazzurri themselves negotiated a buy-back option with Manchester City in the summer of 2010 when they sold the player to the Eastlands outfit, though the truth of the matter is unknown.
Juventus have apparently entered the fray through their burgeoning relationship with Raiola, who also represents Bianconeri summer signing Paul Pogba. The Old Lady has come under constant fire throughout the campaign for lacking a 'top striker' up front after missing out on Robin van Persie and Fernando Llorente, and Gazzetta believes Balotelli could be their man.
Machester City paid €22 million to sign the Italy international from Inter, but his value could be upwards of €30 million in the current market.
