AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani has described the imminent signing of Mario Balotelli as a "dream come true".

The controversial Italy international is poised to join the Serie A club from Manchester City after arriving in Milan to undergo a medical. The 22-year-old is then expected to sign a four-and-a-half-year contract after Milan agreed a fee believed to be worth £19million, rising to £22million, with the Barclays Premier League champions.

Quoted on the club's website, acmilan.com, Galliani said: "I certainly do not have to introduce Mario Balotelli. It is a dream come true and something that we all wanted, with the president Silvio Berlusconi at the forefront."
