official Balotelli to Nice on loan

The Italian striker looks prone to join French side Nice as Jurgen Klopp gets ready for a late Anfield get out. 

Balotelli - who went through three seasons with City somewhere around 2010 and 2013 - was given one final present from the general population of Manchester: a £60 stopping ticket on his Mercedes 4x4. 

With the exchange window shutting quickly, the fundamental center before the due date on Merseyside is trimming back the dead wood in the squad.
