London: Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli has completed his move to AC Milan, signing a four-and-a-half-year contract.

The two clubs agreed a deal on Tuesday afternoon for £20 million that will be spread over five years, while the Italy international is taking a pay cut on his £110,000 per-week to join the Serie A side.

The 22-year-old Italy international brings an end to a controversial two-and-a-half-year stay in England with Roberto Mancini`s side, during which he scored 20 goals in 54 league appearances before helping the club win both the Premier League title and FA Cup, before moving back to his homeland.

"It`s just Milan have acquired Mario balotelli, he has signed a contract until 30.06/2017," AC Milan confirmed via their official twitter account.
