Liverpool’s £16m flop Italian striker Mario Balotelli looks set to re-sign with AC Milan on a season long loan following a poor first season for Liverpool in the Premier League.

According to Italian newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, the Italian striker will take a medical at his former club on Tuesday.

AC Milan will reportedly pay Liverpool €3m for the loan deal whilst paying 50% of his salary.

The Rossoneri are trying to include an option-to-buy clause in the contract at approximately €10 million which is not even half what they sold him for one year ago.

AC Milan CEO Adriano Galliani confirmed the clubs are in talks over a loan move for the striker.

‘There are negotiations with Liverpool for a loan, but we have not reached an agreement on wages,’ Galiani said to Mediaset Premium.

 

 

‘We want a loan with a portion of the wages paid by us and another portion by Liverpool.

‘We want Balo because we are convinced this lad realises that this is absolutely his last chance. I hope he understands that.’

Mario Balotelli managed just one Premier League goal in a frustrating season at Anfield, having scored 14 the season before in Milan.

Brendan Rogders has been trying to offload the 25-year-old hitman all summer but has struggled to come to any sort of arrangement with any of the interested parties.

The Italian was also asked to train separatedly from Liverpool first team squad.

Liverpool signed Christian Benteke and Danny Ings in the summer and Divock Origi also returned from a loan spell from LOSC Lille and Balotelli has failed to make a match squad yet.
