Finally, Mario Balotelli‘s long Liverpool lingering is over.

The mercurial striker has left the Reds for OGC Nice, bringing his talents to France on what’s being reported as a free and permanent deal. It has been rumored as far back as last week.

Balotelli just turned 26, and has scored just seven goals in the past two seasons between the Reds and a loan move to AC Milan.

Uncapped by Italy since 2014, Balotelli did score for fun not too long ago. He netted 30 times in 54 appearances for Milan between 2012-14.

Can he recapture his form at the Allianz Riviera?
