    With £100,000-a-week to play around with you might forgive Mario Balotelli for being a ever so slightly frivolous with his hard earned cash.

    But the Manchester City striker appears to have let the mountains of money go to his head, adopting a total disregard for the north west city's parking laws.

    While us mere mortals pay close attention to where we can park and how long for, the millionaire Italian footballer constantly flouts parking rules notching up almost £10,000 in parking fines.

    On top of that his obligatory supercar, a white Maserati, has been impounded some 27 times.

    Frustrated liaison officers at Manchester City have had to go and pick up his car for him every time it gets towed away.

    A source at the club told The Sun newspaper: 'Mario will drive from his luxury apartment to a restaurant a few streets away and leave the car on double yellows.

    'The other week the Maserati misfired so he just abandoned it. Staff have had to bail it out 27 times.

    'The valet the club uses empties the glovebox of tickets every time he cleans it. Mario doesn't seem to care. It's a drop in the ocean to him.'
    But it seems that's just the tip of the iceberg as far as his arrogance in concerned.

    According to the report, Balotelli was allegedly once pulled over by police with £25,000 in cash on his passenger seat.

    When asked why he had the money, he simply said 'Because I can'.

    Balotelli has also had to pay out £300,000 in club fines, most recently for throwing darts at a youth team player.

    And on the field he has had ten yellow cards and two reds in only 24 appearances.
    The Italian's private life is just as colourful - and, again, it's the player's sheer audacity that makes his love life so interesting.

    Last August he dumped stunning model girlfriend Melissa Castagnoli by text message.
