Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli looks destined for Italy with AC Milan but only if certain terms and conditions surrounding the transfer are met reports the Telegraph.
In the deal, the Italian giants are willing to pay for Balotelli’s transfer in six instalments rather than a lump sum and, only if City agree to sell the troubled star before next week’s transfer deadline.
The deal would also guarantee owner Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed his money back in the long-term.
City paid Inter Milan €26m in July 2012 for the then 20 year old and although Mancini has sanctioned the sale of the Italian international, the clubs hierarchy will demand the transfer be equal to, or greater than what was paid for him almost two years ago.
The Premier League champions have valued the troubled star at €35m but it’s unlikely that AC Milan or any other club for that matter will agree to that fee.
Milan chief executive Adriano Galliani has, however, agreed to pay the €26 m that City are looking for but only on those terms.
