Mario Balotelli

Italian international striker Mario Balotelli has signed for hometown club Brescia on a free transfer.

His free transfer move to Brescia was confirmed by the club earlier on Monday.

He has signed a three-year contract until the end of the 2021/22 season.

Brescia are back in the Italian top flight for the first time in eight years (since 2011) and they have made a big statement with the signing of former Liverpool striker Mario Balotelli.

The 29-year-old was a free agent before he was snapped up his hometown club.

Mario Balotelli became a free agent this summer after the former Liverpool star left French Ligue 1 giants Marseille.

He was released by the former European champions after his short-term deal ended this summer.

Mario Balotelli had earlier joined Marseille as a free agent during the winter transfer window in January.

He teamed up with 1993 Champions League winners Marseille after his contract with fellow French Ligue 1 side OGC Nice was terminated.

Balotelli fell out with then OGC Nice manager Patrick Vieira and that led to the termination of his contract.

He was a Liverpool player for just one season before leaving for Italian Serie A giants AC Milan.

Brescia would be his third Italian club after Inter Milan and AC Milan.
