La Gazzetta dello Sport claims that Mario Balotelli has four more games to earn a permanent stay at San Siro.
The controversial striker joined the Rossoneri on a season-long loan from Liverpool, and the two clubs are set to meet in May to discuss the player’s future.
Not so long ago, it looked as though AC Milan will not be attempting to make the transfer permanent, but things have changed since.
With Mario Balotelli showing some promise under new coach Cristian Brocchi, the club chiefs are ready to give him another chance to prove his worth.
While the Italy international is set to miss tonight’s clash with Hellas Verona, he will feature in the remaining three league fixtures as well as the Coppa Italia final against Juventus, where they are 13/8 chance to lift the trophy.
Mario Balotelli, 25, has failed to impress in his second spell at AC Milan, scoring just one goal in 18 league appearances.
