Mario Balotelli is headed home. Manchester City have agreed to sell the problematic striker to AC Milan. The two clubs reached a agreement on a transfer fee of £20 million and Balotelli will undergo a medical on Wednesday at Busto Arsizio and Milanello.
Balotelli is expected to earn €4 million per year, taking a huge paycut from his current £110,000 per week deal at Manchester City. He will sign a four-and-a-half year contract with The Rossoneri.
Milan revealed via their Twitter account that "Balotelli's medicals will take place [on Wednesday] at Busto Arsizio and Milanello", while his first training session with the team will take place on Thrusday.
The 22-year old striker threw a goodbye party earlier in the week as he prepared to leave for Italy after his tumultuous time in England.
On Saturday, Milan vice-President Adriano Galliani was 99.9% sure Milan were not going to sign the striker but in a press conference on Sunday he suggested further progress had been made.
"Yesterday was 99.9% no, today is 99.5% no," he told reporters. "It is a situation different from that of yesterday, but the bag is closed until tomorrow morning."
The former Inter Milan forward has netted just one league goal for City this season and featured in just five games since November.
