Report: Balotelli closing on Nice loan move

I don’t feel sad, I feel happy – Torres on retirement

Liverpool outcast Mario Balotelli is on the verge of sealing an Anfield exit after arriving in Nice to undergo a medical ahead of a season-long loan.

The controversial Italian has been deemed surplus to requirements by Reds boss Jurgen Klopp, but has struggled to find a new club.

This after being linked with the likes of Sampdoria, Ajax, Napoli and Besiktas in the off-season.

However, he is now on the verge of joining Nice, with reports in the French press claiming a deal is imminent.

According to Canal Plus, the player has successfully completed a medical, although salary negotiations are not yet finalised.

Nice will be taking part in the Europa League this season after securing a fourth-place finish in the 2015/16 Ligue 1 campaign.
