Zlatan Ibrahimovic insists Manchester City starlet Mario Balotelli must join him at Milan if they are to play together.
The pair are close friends and the Swedish striker travelled to Manchester when the Italy international joined the Eastlands club.
Balotelli is keen to play alongside Ibrahimovic, although the ex-Barcelona man insists that can only be done with the Rossoneri.
“This summer he called me every day because I went to Manchester City with him,” he told Mediaset.
“Mario is a great player who will do well in England… I’m glad he wants to play with me, but to do it Mario must come here at Milan.
“Will I call him? No, he must call (Milan’s CEO, Adriano) Galliani.”
