Mario Balotelli has been pictured leaving AC Milan’s training for what could be the last time.
Liverpool and Milan have reportedly agreed a €20 million fee for the Italian striker and he is set to complete a move to Anfield in the coming days.
Milan released a brief official statement earlier saying: "Mario Balotelli drove out of Milanello at 13.30 after saying good-bye to his team-mates and the club's press staff" following pictures, which are displayed above, showing him leaving the training complex in his Ferrari.
Reports suggest that Balotelli did not sign any autographs on his way out, simply stating to journalists that ‘nothing was decided’ yet.
Despite Balotelli’s non-committal statement, his transfer appears a formality now, with his contract terms – of €6-million a year – already agreed.
The former Manchester City player will head to England in the coming days to complete a move, which will see him become Liverpool’s latest recruit in what has been a busy summer for the Reds.
Brendan Rodgers’ side have brought in a host of players across the summer transfer window so far, but Balotelli will be the highest profile of their additions.
There is a real excitement around Anfield about his arrival and if Rodgers can keep his volatile temperament in check then Liverpool have unquestionably pulled off one of the best deals of the summer.
