Mario Balotelli moving to Milan for model girlfriend Fanny Neguesha

London, Jan 30 (ANI): Mario Balotelli has quit Britain in favour of Italian city Milan for the sake of his model lady love Fanny Neguesha.

The Manchester City striker had begged stunning 22-year-old to move in with him.

But she felt his 2-million-pound Manchester mansion was too remote for her to work as a top fashion model.

Pals said that the footie star set his heart on a move away from the Premier League champions to a club in a more glamorous city, the Daily Star reported.

City bosses have agreed to sell Balotelli to Italian club AC Milan for 20 million pounds.

Once 22-year-old Balotelli's transfer is concluded, Neguesha has agreed to swap her Paris home to become his live-in partner in one of the world's fashion capitals.

"They have been dating since before Christmas. She feels Milan is a much better prospect for her modelling career," a pal said.

He has already cleared out his mansion in Alderley Edge, Cheshire, in anticipation of the move. (ANI)
