Serie A giants AC Milan president Silvio Berlusconi has hinted about signing Liverpool flop Mario Balotelli on a permanent basis this summer, as he is believed that the striker can prove his maturity over the next three months.
Italian striker is on loan with the Milan until the end of the 2015/16 campaign, when he is due to return to Liverpool. He has yet to make a real impact in Serie A this year, though, with injury and form restricting him to just 11 league appearances and one goal under coach Sinisa Mihajlovic.
Berlusconi named Balotelli as a striker”Italian even if he has taken too much sun” and talked about his possible stay at San Siro.
“He’s got an extraordinary gift of physical strength and technique, but he still needs to mature, particularly in terms of his behaviour in life,” Berlusconi told 7Gold television. “We’ve also not managed to get him playing in the right position on the field.
“He’s a striker yet he’s always spending time out on the wings. If these things should change, as the coach has assured me they will, then we would be very happy to make a financial sacrifice and keep him with us.”
