Mario Balotelli reportedly wants to stay at Milan, but will need more than a good performance against Juventus to convince them to keep him.
The striker is on loan from Liverpool at San Siro until the end of the season but has had a difficult season plagued with injuries and poor form.
Balotelli was given an opportunity against Juve on Saturday evening and gave a good showing, but Corriere della Sera has warned that this won’t be enough.
The newspaper writes that the Italy international wants to stay with the Rossoneri but hasn’t done enough yet to earn a permanent move.
In order to earn the club’s trust Balo must perform against the smaller clubs, starting with next Sunday’s game against Sampdoria, says the report.
The 25-year-old has scored just once in 16 Serie A games this season, but got the assist for Alex’s opener at San Siro on Saturday.
