Former Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli is close to being shown the door at AC Milan, according to reports in France.

The Italian forward has reportedly angered AC Milan owner Silvio Berlusconi after a number of frustrating performances.

Le10Sport believe Chelsea target Balotelli blew his final chance of impressing Berlusconi on Sunday - when AC Milan lost 4-2 at home to Parma.

Balotelli, who is said to be valued at £25million, found the net from the penalty spot in the 76th minute but did not have a major impact on the game.

News of AC Milan’s desire to get rid of the 23-year-old will boost Chelsea’s chance of bringing Balotelli back to the Premier League.

Mourinho is a big fan of Balotelli - having worked with the controversial forward during his time at Inter Milan.

The Portuguese tactician hinted earlier this month that he could make a move for Balotelli in the summer as he is keen on bolstering Chelsea’s forward line ahead of next season.

Mourinho said on Balotelli: "In football you never know the future.

"Balotelli is with a big club at the moment but you never know the future.”

Balotelli has also previously stated that he would be keen on working with Mourinho again.

The only thing that could jeopardise Balotelli’s move back to the Premier League is Clarence Seedorf, as the Italian enjoys working under the Dutchman.
