MANCHESTER City striker Mario Balotelli says he’s better than Wayne Rooney and is constantly begged in the street to move to rivals Manchester United.
With himself lining up alongside Carlos Tevez and new signing, Â£27m-man Edin Dzeko, the Italian says he also thinks the City strikeforce is the world’s best.
He said: “Our attack of Balotelli-Tevez-Dzeko is the best in the world. We are the strongest. Better even than Barcelona and Real Madrid.
“Rooney is a very good player but not the best in Manchester.
“Do United fans insult me? No, they stop me in the street and say: ‘Mario, come to us’.
“But I dream of beating them because I know how much the City fans care. They are wonderful with me.”
