Balotelli struck a wonderful hat-trick in victory over Aston Villa - but again was muted in his celebrations.
"I am very happy even if the journalists in Italy say I want to go to Milan," he said.
"I am here and I am working hard in training. I want to be an important man for this team and the results are on the pitch."
Balotelli added: "We can win this championship.
"In the new year we can be better."
