ROME (AFP) - Mario Balotelli's chequered career at English champions Manchester City came to an end on Tuesday when the temperamental Italian striker signed for AC Milan in a deal thought to be worth 20 million euros (S$33 million).

"Mario Balotelli to Milan, the player will come tomorrow for his medical and sign his contract," the official Milan channel announced.

City paid Inter Milan 22 million pounds (S$42 million) for the Italy striker in August 2010, but his time at the club has been peppered with controversy both on and off the pitch.
