Liverpool have this afternoon confirmed the signing of Mario Balotelli on the official club website.
The Italian arrives from AC Milan in a deal worth £16million and will add much needed fire power to the Reds’ attack following the departure of Luis Suarez to Barcelona earlier in the window.
Balotelli has been at Melwood today to put the finishing touches to his contract and undergo a few more medical tests. He was pictured earlier wearing LFC training gear and kicking a ball around.
“Super Mario” will travel to tonight’s game, against his former team Manchester City, with other members of the squad that are not involved for the game itself. He will watch from the directors box.
A truly, exciting signing for Liverpool fans and one that will surely bring with it plenty of entertainment. Let’s all hope that means in the entertainment in the form of goals in front of the Kop, eh?
How do you feel about the signing of Mario Balotelli? Will he be a success on Merseyside?
