International striker to rejoin Liverpool next season

Mario Balotelli

Mario Balotelli will be making a return to Liverpool next season after AC Milan have decided not to turn his loan move into a permanent one, according to reports from Calciomercato (as cited by the Metro)

Mario Balotelli proved to be a huge flop after making a £16million move to Liverpool at the start of last season as he managed only 1 goal in the Premier League throughout the course of the campaign.

The poor form allied by a host of off field indiscretions meant that Liverpool decided to offload Balotelli on a loan deal back to Milan this summer and had placed an agreement of £5.4million to turn the transfer into a permanent one at the end of the season.

However, Balotelli has continued his below par performances in Milan as well after managing only a solitary goal in nine matches and as a result, the striker has fallen down the pecking order at the San Siro in recent times.

Due to Balotelli’s poor performances, Milan are not too keen on signing the striker permanently and now according to reports from Calciomercato, it can be revealed that the Italian international will now be on his way back to Anfield at the end of the season.

It remains unclear as to whether Liverpool would want to keep Balotelli upon his return but the 26-year old is surely unlikely to be plying his trade in Milan.
