A reckless remark on his girlfriend has put Mario Balotelli's new-found love life in the doldrums. Balotelli's model companion Fanny Neguesha has reportedly dumped the maverick Italian striker following a blazing remark he made on her recently.
According to the Sun, Balotelli said the entire Real Madrid team could sleep with Fanny if they made the Champions League final. The 22-year-old AC Milan reportedly said the Madrid players, including Cristiano Ronaldo, "could have sex with Fanny if they managed to go through."
The remark was apparently made after Real lost the first leg of the Champions League semi-final 4-1 against German side Borussia Dortmund. Balotelli later denied saying this.
Real didn't make the final, losing 4-3 on aggregate, but Fanny have walked out of football bad boy's Italian mansion. Belgian Fanny is reportedly angry with Balotelli's friendship with kickboxer Giorgio Petrosyan.
The Sun quotes sources as saying: "This was a major bust-up and could spell the end for Mario and Fanny."
But Balotelli doesn't seem too worried. He has cheered himself up by buying a 200,000 Pound Ferrari F450!
End-March this year, Balotelli revealed his relationship with Fanny. He attributed his relationship with her for finding his goal-scoring touch for AC Milan.
"Yes, I am in love!" said Balotelli in an interview. (Read) "She is determined, confident and generous. In a short space of time she found herself in sync with me. I could spend my whole life with someone like this."
Surprisingly mature words from a player, who has been photographed with known mafia mobsters, burnt his house down and was spotted in a Milan jersey while playing for Inter.
Last year Balotelli split from TV presenter Raffaella Fico, 25, even though she was pregnant with their daughter, Pia.
