Liverpool in talks with AC Milan over Mario Balotelli loan deal, Galliani confirms

Published 4 Comments

AC Milan are in talks regarding a transfer for Liverpool’s Mario Balotelli, the club's general manager Adriano Galliani has confirmed.

Since leaving the Rossoneri for Anfield last summer the forward has struggled, only notching four goals in all competitions last term. As a result he’s been frozen out on Merseyside, with it purported that he could be in line for the chop.

Talks confirmed

Indeed the fact that Rodgers has kept him away from the first-team squad so far this term alludes to the idea that he wants the Italian gone. Enter AC Milan, who have yet to agree official terms, but are certainly interested in his re-capture.

"Certain loves come back, but we're going to have to wait a while yet before we can sing that about Balotelli," Galliani told Mediaset, as per the Daily Mirror.

"We're in talks with Liverpool to bring him back on loan. We've not reached an agreement yet about how much of his wage we will have to pay and how much they will pay.

"So there's no agreement just yet. The player has realised that this is the very last train for him to get on. He wants to come back, so let's see."

Interesting return

The fact that Balotelli now looks likely to return to Italy will surprise few fans given how successful he’s been in Serie A in the past.

Both Sampdoria and Lazio were also said to be ready to fight for the 25-year-old’s signature, but the allure of the San Siro might well be too much for him to turn down.

After all, prior to joining Liverpool Balotelli enjoyed a season wherein he scored 14 domestic goals with Milan, proving he can certainly do the business in his native Italy when called upon.

Last chance saloon

The thing that’s most interesting about the proposed deal is that many can assume it will represent his last chance to realise his potential at a top club.

A troubled spell with Manchester City left the striker with an indifferent reputation, whilst his latest stint in England will have done him no favours.
