Manchester City signed Mario for £24m in the year 2010 and he had quite a good season with them. He was quite successful for Manchester city because he scored twenty valuable goals for his team in the premier league. In the first season he scored 10 goals in his 28 encounters. In the next season he was in his top form as he scored 20 goals in only forty matches.
However, he has struggled with disciplinary things in the field and as a result of this he picked 11 yellow cards. He could not play the matches against Arsenal and Liverpool and both of these matches were extremely crucial for the team. It may be the reason why Mancini decided to sell this striker to AC Milan.
In 2012, he played wonderfully for his country Italy in the Euro Cup. Especially in the semi final he played exceptionally well against Germany and scored two goals and eventually Italy won the match. However, when he got back to the domestic season, he could not continue the form and he finally ended behind Edin Dzeko, Carlos Tevez and Aguero. In total he scored only three goals and his best performance was in a 2-0 victory on 28thNovember at Wigan.
AC Milan fans will want that Balotelli will get back his form with his new team because he had a long wish to play in AC Milan and as he has got the opportunity now, he will surely try to prove a point.
