Rome, Dec 6 (IANS) Mario Balotelli's agent Mino Raiola feels that none of the Italian Serie A football clubs can afford the Manchester City striker.

Raiola said Wednesday that the temperamental Balotelli will not join AC Milan, reports Xinhua.

"Balotelli costs as much as the Mona Lisa," he said. "There are no teams in Italy which could afford him."

The Italian international is again being paired with the Diavolo after AC Milan president Silvio Berlusconi fuelled transfer rumours, Tuesday.

But Raiola said that no Serie A sides have the finances to land his client.
