Fans clash with police over Balotelli celebrations


AC Milan football fans have clashed with Italian police as they celebrated a proposed transfer of Mario Balotelli to their club from Manchester City.

The police used tear gas as the fans let off flares and threw bottles outside a restaurant in Milan where the Italy striker was having a dinner.

One policeman was taken to hospital with head injuries, reports say.

Balotelli is in Milan for a medical before a proposed transfer for an initial fee of 22m euros (£19m).
