It is not yet clear whether Balotelli will be in the stands at the Stadio Artemio Franchi to see his former club in action, but Milan’s general manager Adriano Galliani hinted that there could be some truth to the reports.
Even Milan Channel have now confirmed Mario Balotelli showed “humility” when meeting Sinisa Mihajlovic.
Liverpool forward Mario Balotelli has flown back to Italy to conduct talks with AC Milan over a potential loan return to his former club according to the Daily Mail.
Milan were interested in Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who shares the same agent as Balotelli – Mino Raiola – but it is believed Paris Saint-Germain do not want to sell the Sweden striker at present.
It was under Mihajlovic that he made his breakthrough in an Inter shirt, when the Serbian was assistant to Roberto Mancini at the Nerazzurri.
The terms of a free loan would stipulate that Liverpool continue to pay all of Balotelli’s wages while Milan land the mercurial striker.
When Galliani was asked about the possibility of Balotelli calling San Siro his home ground for the third time in his career, the Rossoneri chief did little to dispel the notion. “They draw enormous circles and then they come back”. Yes, the AC Milan that Balotelli left just last summer to join Liverpool, the one he left in part because the racial abuse he received from both home and away fans had become unbearable. “Club president Silvio Berlusconi and I are two romantics”.
