The Italian will rejoin his former club on loan after a difficult spell on Merseyside.

The Italian endured a torrid time at Anfield, appearing just 28 times and scoring four goals following his £16 million move (according to BBC Sport) last summer.
He returns to a struggling Rossoneri side, far removed from the heights of a few years ago, who could only manage a 10th place finish in Serie A last season.
Sinisa Mihajlovic’s team have gone about strengthening this summer, however, and new recruits Carlos Bacca and Luis Adriano will make Balotelli’s task of securing a first team berth a very tricky one.
The 25-year old’s career has stagnated after showing early promise and this latest move has more than a hint of the ‘last-chance-saloon’ about it.
Twitter reaction proved fairly unanimous, with the Liverpool faithful delighted to see the back of one of the club’s biggest disappointments in recent memory.
Looks like we've dealt with Balotelli for a year, but we'll be back in this position again next summer.— Deej (@DevJ6) August 25, 2015
Damn, I wish I got as many chances in life as Balotelli did. #LFC— LFC Texas (@LFC_Texas) August 25, 2015
Even if Liverpool have to pay #Balotelli till he retires it's still good business getting rid of him— Ben Grundman (@grundman_8) August 25, 2015
Balotelli was a gamble that didnt pay off..simple as that! Onwards and upwards #LFC— Ian...... (@redian77) August 25, 2015
Glad the Balotelli saga is over. Never should have signed him in the first place— Shane Read (@shaneread2010) August 25, 2015
I know Balotelli does'nt help himself but if he'd been given as much chances as Allen has, perhaps things could've been different.— Griffith Arthur (@FunkyNab) August 25, 2015
Balotelli is one of them players you celebrate when he joins your club and then celebrate when he leaves. @FinallyMario— Deluded_Moyes (@DeludedMoyes) August 25, 2015
