Mario Balotelli to leave city
MAN CITY ace MARIO BALOTELLI will have to curb his late-night adventures - his parents are moving in with him.
The Italian striker is leaving his Manchester city centre penthouse for a plush pad in the sticks.
And his parents FRANCO and SILVIA will be staying to help him settle in and hopefully save him some cash by cooking a few hot dinners.
Mario has racked up a huge collection of parking tickets by leaving his Maserati outside his favourite restaurant, San Carlo - even though it’s walking distance from his flat.
A source said: "Mario has had enough of the penthouse and wants to live somewhere bigger out of the city.
"His beloved dog Lucky will have plenty of space to run around and it will be easier for Mario to take him on walks.
"His folks are keen to help him out with the move and ensure he is OK.
“But he might have to behave himself now they’ll be under the same roof.”
The striker had better get rid of his darts.
Mario is back in Italy and missed the club’s end-of-season party last week.
But he is still sure his future is with The Blues.
City have put together a list of houses that will be suitable for him, including Manchester United rival WES BROWN’s pad, which is on the market.
It will be interesting to see how Mario renovates his new country house.
