AC Milan reaches agreement with Manchester City to sign striker Mario Balotelli

AC Milan says it has reached an agreement with Manchester City to sign Italian striker Mario Balotelli.

He will have a medical Wednesday and is then expected to sign a 4½-year deal through 2017.

Club director Umberto Gandini confirmed the agreement to The Associated Press, adding there will be no deal if Balotelli doesn't pass the medical.

The move ends a turbulent 2½ years in England for Balotelli.

Milan reportedly paid $27 million plus bonuses for Balotelli, who will be taking a pay cut to play for the club he has supported since childhood. Balotelli progressed through the ranks at Inter Milan before joining City in 2010.
