Milan: Italy striker Mario Balotelli has landed in Milan to finalize his move from Manchester City to AC Milan on Wednesday.

Milan announced on Tuesday that it had reached an agreement with City and that Balotelli would sign a 4 1/2-year deal following a medical exam.

Balotelli flew into Milan on a private plane on Wednesday afternoon along with the club's vice president Adriano Galliani.

Wearing a Milan scarf around his neck, Balotelli said "it's been a long time that I've wanted to play for Milan, but obviously I was playing for other clubs so I couldn't come here. Now I had the opportunity and I ran."

Balotelli, who has supported Milan since childhood, joined Manchester City from the Rossoneri's city rival Inter in 2010.
