Mario Balotelli is to undergo a medical at Milan on Tuesday as the Liverpool misfit edges closer to the Anfield exit door.
Widespread reports emerged on Monday suggesting that Balotelli was on the verge of re-joining Milan on a season-long loan deal.
And the Serie A giants have now confirmed that the striker has arrived in Italy to complete the formalities of his switch.
A short statement on Milan’s official website read: “At 8.26 this morning, Mario Balotelli has reached the La Madonnina clinic for medical examinations provided for today.”
Speaking to MilanNews.It after completing his medical, Balotelli said: “I am happy to be back – now I’m waiting to start training.
Physically I feel pretty good, I just have to train with the team. I always had Milan in my heart and I always hoped to come back.”
Balotelli – who scored just one Premier League goal last season – left Milan for Liverpool in a deal worth around £16million exacly one year ago.
