Balotelli Heading to Milan

Posted: Jan. 28th, 2013  |  By Michael Pearse

International soccer star Mario Balotelli seems to be making a move to AC Milan. Fans from Milan are not too pleased even though Balotelli’s talents override his unacceptable behavior. Balotelli has potential to become one of Europe’s greatest strikers. His move to Milan will likely prove to be very controversial.

Manchester City believe Mario Balotelli could be bought by Milan, despite Silvio Berlusconi branding him a "rotten apple", and the Premier League champions are willing to accept about €30m (£24.6m) for the troubled striker.

That equates to the fee City paid in 2010 for Balotelli to Internazionale, who have first refusal on the player. There is a sense that the comments from Berlusconi, Milan's owner, about Balotelli potentially having a detrimental effect on the club's changing room may not represent the view of Massimiliano Allegri, the head coach, or other key members of the Rossoneri's management.
