Liverpool loanee Mario Balotelli has not been able to cement a place in the AC Milan squad after moving to Italy from Liverpool last summer.
He has had a number of injuries that have hampered his progress this season and his last appearance in the 2-1 defeat to Juventus did not help his cause for a place in the squad next season.
The Italian national is contracted with the Merseyside outfit until the summer of 2018 and is currently on loan for the Italian outfit. His comeback to the Premier League was not as expected while his comeback to the Serie A has been even more underwhelming.
He has not been able to show his talent in the limited opportunities he got this season and is now on the verge of moving away from both clubs.
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp revealed recently that he will have talks with the player come to the end of the season before deciding his future while his current boss is not too keen on keeping him in Milan for another season.
To add to this, the 25-year old has now been dealt harshly by the AC Milan Chief Adriano Galliani.
Speaking to the Italian media, Galliani had harsh words to say about the striker who has not been able to live up to his potential.
He revealed that he will have to learn to adjust with the Milan squad and to be a perfect fit at San Siro for the next season.
He said that Balotelli will have to convince the Milan outfit to spend the money on him to buy him permanently and that it is on the player to give Milan a reason to keep hold of him this summer.
“Balotelli has to earn the right to play for Milan. He knows that we had a very long talk about it. He must convince us to buy him outright, so it depends only on him,” Galliani added talking to the media.
However, he also said that the 25-year old is quite capable of making the starting XI at Milan and that he hopes that the player can change things around and prove himself in the rest of the season.
“Mario has everything it takes to achieve that aim. We hope he will achieve it,” he added.
However, chances for Balotelli staying at Milan are slim with his parent club Liverpool ready to listen to big money offers from the Chinese Super League.
Where do you think Mario should play next season?
