Balotelli hints at Milan move

Mario Balotelli was upset at the racist jeers from the crowd in Austria, but also hinted at a move to Milan. “I'm at Manchester City until June.”

The Italy striker was subjected to racist boos during tonight's 1-1 draw with Romania, but not all of them came from the opposition fans.

A small group of supporters unfurled banners that targeted both Balotelli and Argentine-born debutant Cristian Ledesma. They read ‘Italy for Italians' and ‘No to a multi-ethnic Italy.'
