Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli is all set to join Italian giants AC Milan in a 24 million pound deal despite club owner Silvio Berlusconi branding him a rotten apple recently.

Balotelli, who is childhood AC Milan fan, is eager for his dream move to San Siro after getting disillusioned in City following a furious spat with City manager Roberto Mancini on the training ground, the Sun reports.

Despite his doubts, Berlusconi wants the football star who is a lifelong AC Milan fan to guide his team forward to the Scudetto.

Although City will hold out for Balotelli for the same amount, it is likely that the Italian striker's City career is over. (ANI)
