PARIS (Reuters) – Italy striker Mario Balotelli has agreed to join Olympique de Marseille from fellow Ligue 1 side Nice on a six-month contract, French sports daily L’Equipe reported on Tuesday. The newspaper added that the 28-year-old, who has also played for Inter and AC Milan as well as Manchester City and Liverpool, would have a medical on Wednesday. OM were not immediately available to comment. Balotelli’s contract was due to expire in June.

Marseille are seventh in the standings, level on 31 points with eighth-placed Nice who have played a game more.
