AC Milan confirm Liverpool negotiations for Mario Balotelli on their website

The transfer of Mario Balotelli from AC Milan to Liverpool is moving quickly.

AC Milan have released a statement on Thursday morning, confirming that negotiations are underway for Balotelli but he is still training with his team mates.

Whilst Liverpool are not directly mentioned in the statement, on AC Milan’s TV channel it has been confirmed that the Merseyside giants are the side in discussions.

This follows widespread reports in England and Italy that Balotelli’s agent Mino Raiola is discussing the deal in England today.

AC Milan are expected to spend the cash brought in from Balotelli on Porto striker Jackson Martinez, as well as supplement Pippo Inzaghi’s squad.

The Rossoneri have been looking to offload Balotelli all summer and now looks like they will in the coming days, perhaps even hours.

Sky Italia have also confirmed that negotiations for Balotelli are “almost there”.
