Former Man City man Mario Balotelli is just 23 and playing for his dream club AC Milan, but his agent won't rule out a move in the future.

The Italy international joined AC Milan from Manchester City in January and is tied to the Rossoneri until June 2017.

"Probably Italy will not be the final stage of his (Balotelli's) career," said Balotelli's agent Mino Raiola to Italian TV channel Mediaset.

"But he has still many years left in his contract and I don't want to think that he needs to leave because of the reason that there is too much pressure on him."

Balotelli is constantly in the spotlight for his actions on and off the pitch.

The former Inter Milan striker recently returned from a three-match ban for making insulting and intimidating comments towards a referee during a Serie A game.

"There's too much attention on him and we have to accept it and manage it as best we can," Raiola said.

"But it is exaggerated.

"Even in England, the attention on him was exaggerated but you could deal with it.

"I think here whatever Mario does is reported, every story is blown out of proportion.

"My wish is to speak of football when Mario's name is mentioned and not about the rest.

"It's (media attention) not good, period.

"Everyone needs to calm down.

"We will analyse things with Milan."

Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani is not concerned by the agent's remarks.

He said to Gazzeta dello Sport:"Mino is clever.

"He loves to provoke.

"I have known Mino for many years and we shouldn't worry.

"More so because Balotelli has four years left on his contract."
