Mario Balotelli's agent has denied saying that his client is looking to quit AC Milan in the January transfer window.
Mino Raiola had been quoted as telling a source that the striker was aiming to leave the Rossoneri, due to concerns that they may not qualify for next season's Champions League, and as claiming that Chelsea were a potential destination.
But the agent has wasted little time in completely denying that he said any such thing.
"I have not spoken with anyone", an angry Raiola explained to Sky Italia.
"They are liars. This is low-level journalism.
"I agree with what's been reported on the official AC Milan site regarding Balotelli not being available for transfer in January."
Milan currently sit just 13th in Serie A with 19 points from 17 games. Balotelli joined the Rossoneri in the 2013 January transfer window from Manchester City.
