The Italy international will undergo a medical in Milan on Wednesday before finalising his move back to Serie A after three headline-grabbing years at Manchester City.

"Balotelli is a great player and will definitely help the squad. We are happy he has arrived and we are all going to welcome him. Let's hope he does well for Milan," Robinho said.

Milan tackle Barcelona in the last 16 of the Champions League but Balotelli, who had spent four seasons at Internazionale before his move to Manchester, will not be eligible having already featured in this season's group stages for City.

Robinho added: "There's enthusiasm in the changing room and we're getting better. There are still plenty of games to go and every three points will help us move up the table.

"The beginning of the campaign wasn't good, and once more the Italian league is proving to be difficult.

"But at the moment we're experiencing a good run of form in this crucial point of the season, and with 16 games to go anything is possible."

Balotelli's arrival in Milan had been delayed by fog but he is expected to sign a four-and-a-half year deal with the seven-time European champions.

Milan are currently fifth in Serie A, trailing league leaders Juventus by 12 points.

S I've always envisioned him as a Pirlo or a Scholes, though he needs some of Andy Murray's conditioning and shiny, ankle supports to keep his own from buckling under the tackles that will (inevitably) come his way. He's got the physique and low centre of gravity to flourish, but needs to make himself more resilient.

Time For Another Wenger U-Turn On Wilshere?

A

s a United fan I fell I can say this without accusation of bias, Sergio Aguero is for me the only player close to Ronaldo or Messi, what goes against him is his injury record, Hazard is good in fits but doesn't give enough end product in my eyes, Tevez would be 4th for me
