AC Milan have completed the signing of Mario Balotelli from Premier League champions Manchester City.

The Italian striker told Manchester City's official website: "“For sure I will remember my brilliant team-mates, the manager and all the supporters. They are the best, they were great with me and I will always have a very special place in my heart for City, it’s a great club with a great future,” he declared.

“I thank them for all of their support of me. Maybe one day we will see each other again."

“I spoke with Roberto before I went to speak to the players. We spoke for some time about lots of things. He was sad, and I was too. But it was a good conversation. I love Roberto, he has been very important for my career, and I will always thank him for having trust and faith in me."
