Mario Balotelli is on the brink of leaving Manchester City for AC Milan.

The Sun says he is all packed up and ready to join AC Milan in a £24million deal.

The Manchester City striker, 22, has given notice on his rented house in Cheshire and has also begun flying his possessions back to Milan.

His representative Mino Raiola was in Italy this week for talks over a move back to the San Siro.

City boss Roberto Mancini is now happy to see the back of a player who has caused him nothing but trouble since his £22m switch from Inter in 2010.
