Balotelli completes six-month move to Marseille
Balotelli, 28, has signed for the former European champions until the end of the season after being released from the remainder of his contract by Nice and passing a medical at the Velodrome earlier in the day.
Marseille coach Rudi Garcia said this week that signing Balotelli was his “number one priority”.
OM are currently seventh in Ligue 1 and have struggled for goals after failing in an attempt to bring Balotelli to the club last summer.
Their main strikers, Valere Germain and Kostas Mitroglou, have scored just three league goals each so far this season.
Balotelli netted 33 goals in 51 league appearances for Nice over the last two seasons, but leaves the Cote d’Azur club without having found the net in the current campaign.
