Official: Mario Balotelli's Future Resolved
Former AC Milan and Liverpool striker Mario Balotelli's immediate future is no longer up in the air.
The Italy international has signed a new one-year deal with Ligue 1 outfit Nice – his original contract with the French side was set to expire at the end of this month.
The 26-year-old joined Nice from Liverpool on a free transfer in August 2016, following an unsuccessful loan spell at Milan.
"We are proud to have convinced the superstar to join us last year and to have seen him flourish on and off the field," a statement on the club's official website read.
"The Italian international has made considerable financial efforts to continue the Nice adventure, as he always intended during this off-season, favouring the sporting aspect and the choice of his heart.
"Today we are happy. Welcome to you, Super Mario."
Balotelli made 28 appearances for Nice last season, scoring 17 goals and assisting one further strike in all competitions.
