AC Milan striker Mario Balotelli is set to make a move to Liverpool, but must sign a “behaviour clause” to complete the £16million deal, Mirror reports.

Balotelli bid his farewells to his Milan team-mates yesterday, and is expected to make a transfer to Anfield in the coming days.

“Mario Balotelli drove out of Milanello at 13.30 after saying good-bye to his team-mates and the club’s press staff,” as said by Milan’s official website.

However due to the Italian’s previous off-field activities, Balotelli must agree to sign a good-conduct clause in his new Liverpool contract.

Mino Raiola, his agent, is currently negotiating the sanctions imposed by Liverpool if Balotelli was to misbehave out of the regulations provided by the clause.

Balotelli flew into London last night to continue discussions, but reports suggest that Reds boss Brendan Rodgers will only meet the 24-year-old once the terms are met.

Rodgers will not give Balotelli the go-ahead to make the switch unless the former Inter Milan striker can act in accordance to the club’s professional culture.

Although the Northern Irish manager has his reservations, it is claimed Rodgers is willing to take the chance with volatile hitman as the deal represents “phenomenal value”.

Liverpool will be facing champions Manchester City in their next Premier League fixture, but the Merseyside club are unlikely to complete the deal in time for “Super Mario” to face his former club.
