Mario Ballotelli signs for Liverpool

Liverpool Football Club of England has completed the signing of AC Milan striker, Mario Balotelli, the Premier League club have confirmed.

The deal for the Italian, who scored 18 goals in all competitions last season, cost around €20 million, with Balotelli flying in to complete medicals on Friday before putting pen to paper on a long-term deal at Anfield.

Balotelli signed for boyhood club Milan in January 2013 after three often tumultuous years at Manchester City, but has been unhappy at San Siro for several months while club owner Silvio Berlusconi was keen to move him on.

“I’m happy to be back because I left England and it was a mistake,” the 24-year-old admitted. “I wanted to go to Italy but I realised it was a mistake”

“English football is generally better. English football is beautiful,” Balotelli told the club’s official website.
