Mario Balotelli has packed his bags at Manchester City. The Daily Mail says Balotelli may finally be checking out from Manchester City this week after Italian giants AC Milan last night opened talks with the Barclays Premier League champions about a £24m move for the controversial striker.

Balotelli was seen carrying some belongings from the club's training ground yesterday before he joined his team-mates in London for tonight's game against QPR at Loftus Road.

Earlier on Monday coach Brian Kidd asked the striker for an autograph after training, which some interpreted as a sign Balotelli's time in Manchester was coming to an end.
