Manchester City's bad boy striker Mario Ballotelli and Manchester United's injury-prone centre half Rio Ferdinand are to team up in a new music video, according to tabloid reports today (April 12).

The pair have agreed to hook up to star in rising rapper RIO's (wonder why Ferdinand agreed to that?) new promo for 'Can't Stop We'.

The Italian maverick, who recently got himself suspended after being sent off in City's recent game against Arsenal, apparently shows up in a hairdressers, while RIO has said he is keeping Ferdinand's star turn a secret.

Speaking about the video, RIO told The Sun of his time with Balotelli: "We were showing off to each other, seeing who could do the best. But I had to be careful when he went in for a tackle! Hanging out with him, he is such a humble, down to Earth, really nice guy."

The promo is also set to feature Labrinth, X Factor star Misha B and Coronation Street actress Brooke Vincent. It will be unveiled in the coming weeks.
