The North London defeat dropped Balotelli’s team eight points behind Manchester United.
Manchester City Manager Roberto Mancini stated Balotelli has “probably” played his last game for City.
The footballers agent replied by saying "I heard Roberto and I can guarantee that the intention is not to sell him. If so then I will speak in person with Mancini and City, maybe he said those things because a defeat is hard to swallow for Manchester.”
The club has now claimed Mancini’s statement was in reference to expecting the football association to throw the book at the controversial star.
