AC Milan will reportedly offer Liverpool the chance to return Mario Balotelli to the San Siro this summer.
The Italian endured a horrific first season on Merseyside following his £16m move from the Rossoneri, scoring only one Premier League goal in 16 games.

The Reds resisted the chance to sell Balotelli to Sampdoria in January, only for Brendan Rodgers to largely sideline him after Christmas and start him in just two top-flight matches in 2015.
But The Daily Express claims that they are now prepared to call time on the 24-year-old’s brief Anfield career after learning that Milan want him back at a similar price.
Sampdoria manager Sinisa Mihajlovic is expected to take over from Filippo Inzaghi and Balotelli is a key element of a summer reshuffle which he hopes will return Milan to the upper reaches of Serie A.
The striker enjoyed arguably the best spell of his troubled career in his stint at the San Siro, scoring 26 goals in an 18-month spell after quitting Manchester City.
