DONE DEAL: Monza deal in Balotelli as Galliani fires warning

Former AC Milan striker Mario Balotelli has signed for Monza to the end of the season.

Monza chief Adriano Galliani has welcomed Balotelli with a warning: this is your last chance.

Monza are owned by ex-Milan President Silvio Berlusconi, with coach Cristian Brocchi and players including Kevin-Prince Boateng.

“I gave him a proper talking to, and told him this is truly the last, absolutely last, completely the last chance," Galliani told La Gazzetta dello Sport.

“I do love Mario, he's a player with the kind of technical and physical qualities that should've allowed him do so much more with his career.

“There were flashes of exceptional quality and I can't understand why he can't get even better. After all, he is only 30 years old."

The contract is short-term, until June 30, 2021, once Balotelli has passed his medical.
