MILAN, April 8 – Mario Balotelli is expected to return to parent club Liverpool when his season-long loan deal at AC Milan expires.

The Serie A club’s chief executive Adriano Galliani admitted the striker was not meeting expectations, and has failed to convince the Rossoneri to keep him.

“We really like Mario, but he has to convince us to earn a permanent deal,” said Galliani.

“Mario is feeling well. He is desperate to stay here at Milan. But like I have said before, he does not merit a permanent deal at the moment.”

The 25-year-old Italian has scored just three goals in 17 appearances since moving back to Milan at the start of the season.

The Reds signed the bad-boy striker from Milan in August 2014 for a fee of £16 million, but loaned him back to the Rossoneri after just one season in Merseyside.

Should Balotelli return to Liverpool next season, it is unclear whether or not he will be in the plans of new manager Jurgen Klopp.
