'Bad boy' Balotelli in more trouble with Man City after partying 12 hrs straight before PL game!
Manchester City's 'bad boy' striker Mario Balotelli may be on his way out of the Etihad, after he partied 12 hours straight before the weekend's Premier League game.
Balotelli was seen entering an Alderley Edge restaurant at 1am, with City kicking off at 1.30pm against Spurs the same afternoon.
"He arrived at Panacea with a big entourage and certainly hadn't dressed down for the occasion. I was astonished that he would be so brazen being seen out partying so close to a match, whether he was playing or not," The Sun quoted an eye witness, as saying.
According to the paper, it means Roberto Mancini may now get an approval to make a club-record 45 million pounds bid for Atletico Madrid's Radamel Falcao once he gets rid of Balotelli.
Balotelli had been previously axed from the City squad the previous day and told he was not required at the team hotel that night, the paper said.
Colombian Falcao will cost City 45 million pounds, dwarfing the 38 million pounds they paid Atletico for Sergio Aguero. But club chiefs are willing to fund a January move if they can get back the 24 million pounds they paid Inter for Balo in August 2010, the paper added.
