FC Liverpool Update : Liverpool Sign Mario Balotelli
With three weeks left in the summer transfer window, Liverpool have signed only one frontman, Rickie Lambert from Southampton for £4m.
It was announced today that Liverpool have agreed to sign Mario Balotelli from Serie A club, AC Milan for a £16m fee to replace Suarez and support fellow frontman Daniel Sturridge.
The twenty-four year old former Manchester City striker scored 30 goals in his first season at City to help them win their first Premier League title. In his second campaign at City, Super Mario scored only three goals in 20 games.
After a training-ground conflict with then Liverpool manager Roberto Mancini, Balotelli transferred to AC Milan in January 2013 for £19m where he proceeded to score 30 goals in 54 matches.
Reds manager Brendan Rodgers hopes Balotelli will support Sturridge and strengthen his side to win the 2014-15 Premiership silverware and Champions League title.
At Liverpool, Balotelli will be guaranteed Champions League competition after the Reds finished second on the table, runners-up to Man City in the Premiership last term.
Super Mario played for the Italy National Team at the World Cup 2014 in Brazil.
