Going to AC Milan for €23m: Mario Balotelli’s best moments at Manchester City
- January 29, 2013
After two years, one Premier League title, one FA Cup medal and more front page and backpage stories than any other footballer in recent years, Mario Balotelli is finally setting sail out of Manchester City.
Balotelli is joining AC Milan for a reported €23m (€20m cash and €3m in bonuses), and the Italian striker is penning a 4-year deal worth €4m a season.
Balotelli’s time in England has been epic.
Stupid hats, fireworks, memorable t-shirts, bibs, fights, endless partying pics and the odd moment of football wizardry have all been part of Balotelli’s whirlwind life in the Premier League.
