Liverpool striker completes medical at AC Milan

_85164211_mario_balotelli_liverpool_body_gettyLiverpool striker Mario Balotelli has completed a medical at AC Milan before returning to the Italian club on a one-season loan deal.

Balotelli is taking a pay cut to move back to Milan, with Liverpool also paying some of his wages.

The Italy striker could make his second debut for the Rossoneri against Serie A rivals Empoli on Saturday.

“I always had Milan in my heart and always had hope that I would return one day,” the 25-year-old said.

“Will I end my career here? I just have to start to work and have a good year. I’m looking forward to training and proving my worth. I have a lot of motivation but I just have to work and not speak.”

Balotelli scored just one Premier League goal for Liverpool after a £16m move from Milan in August 2014.

He was left out of the pre-season tour of the Far East and Australia and has been training away from the first team.
