Mario Balotelli: Taunted during derby draw with Inter

Balotelli - a former Inter player - was targeted for abuse during a 1-1 draw, and Serie A officials met on Tuesday to decide on a punishment.

The Italy striker has also been fined - £8,600 - for a gesture towards Inter supporters at the final whistle, while Milan must hand over the same amount after their fans displayed "insulting banners".

Inter's latest penalty comes just weeks after fans sang derogatory songs about the striker during a game against Chievo, costing their club £13,000.

President Massimo Moratti apologised and called for the chants to stop in the aftermath of that incident, but some supporters failed to heed his warning.

Racism has increasingly been in the spotlight in Italy in recent months, and Milan's Kevin-Prince Boateng walked off the pitch in response to taunts during a January friendly against Pro Patria.

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
