Mario Balotelli completes move to Nice

Italian striker Mario Balotelli has completed a move to OGC Nice. He signed for the Ligue 1 club for free from Liverpool.

Balotelli will receive a salary of €4.5m per year, according to French daily Nice Matin. He will join Nice, currently 3rd in Ligue 1, on a one year deal.

It appears Liverpool were more than happy just to get the striker off their wage bill – the Italian would have been out of contract with Liverpool regardless next summer.
