Mario Balotelli has arrived for his Olympique Marseille medical and to sign the two-year contract.
The Italy international decided not to renew his deal with Nice after two years at the club, but remains in Ligue 1.
He was filmed arriving at Marseille’s training centre this afternoon, where he will have his medical and sign the paperwork.
Although his contract with Nice has technically expired, the club is still owed €10m by his next employers.
Balo will be working with ex-Roma Coach Rudi Garcia, who reached the Europa League Final last term.
The 27-year-old is expected to earn €6m per year in Marseille.
