Balotelli has long been linked with a move to City, where boss Roberto Mancini is keen to be reunited with the youngster he snapped up as Inter coach in 2006.
The Italy forward's agent Mino Raiola believes a deal could go through on Friday, although he admits it is unlikely Balotelli will feature in City's opener against Tottenham on Saturday.
"Today, there was a step forwards, I can confirm that," Raiola told Sky Italia. "So I am very confident about closing the deal soon but it doesn't just depend on me."
