Jol would sign Mario 'for 7m'

Martin Jol has said he would be keen to sign Manchester City's Mario Balotelli.

However, the striker's manager Roberto Mancini has stressed that the 22-year-old 'is not going anywhere'.

Fulham manager Jol admitted he would be keen to take Balotelli 'at the right price'.

He told the Daily Express: "He would probably cost more than the Mona Lisa but if I could get him for 7m I would be interested."

But Mancini told Sky Sport Italia: "Balotelli is not for sale.

"Mario is a City player, he is loved by the fans and the management. He has been an important player for us.

"A player of his quality should think exclusively to his work and his family, he has talent and he cannot blow it as he is doing.

"Our paths may separate if I change the team but he will remain at City."
