Balotelli “the bad boy” completes move to Milan from Manchester City
Mario Balotelli’s turbulent Manchester City career is over after the club confirmed the controversial striker has completed his move to Milan.
Balotelli, who passed a medical on Thursday morning, joined City in 2010, making 80 appearances and scoring 30 goals.
The 22-year-old, who pulled out of the City squad on Tuesday evening before the 0-0 draw at QPR as the deal neared fruition, said when he arrived in Italy on Wednesday: “I’ve wanted to play for Milan for such a long time. Obviously I played for other teams and couldn’t come. But when there was the chance, I ran.”
Balotelli was presented with a team shirt at the airport bearing his name and his squad number 45, the same number he wore at first club Internazionale and at City.
