Super Mario has San Siro as likely destination.
Mario Balotelli may have played his last game for the club according to The Guardian.
The player’s club Manchester City have been attempting to offload the striker, despite public denials to the contrary, ever since his training ground bust-up with manager Roberto Mancini.
Balotelli has played an increasingly marginalised role this season, with Sergio Aguero, Carlos Tevez and Edin Dzeko all seemingly ahead of him in the pecking order, and both club and player are ready to part ways.
Balotelli is known to prefer a move to his boyhood club, AC Milan, and it is rumoured that the San Siro is indeed his most likely destination.
The two clubs are in advanced negotiations for the player’s transfer with the remaining sticking point centering largely around a potential fee.
City are holding out for around £31 million while Milan believe a fee closer to the £24 million City paid Inter for his services is closer to his true valuation.
The two clubs are set to continue discussions during this week, but City are reportedly willing to let the player leave on loan until the end of the season should a transfer fee not be agreed.
It is a fall from grace for a player once heralded as the catalyst for Man City’s success. Balotelli set up the goal for Sergio Aguero last season that would win City their first Premier League title but it now looks like his Etihad career is over.
