Now the former Real Madrid and Inter playmaker only has the details to complete before adding to the Allianz Riviera side’s ranks, where he will team up with Mario Balotelli and Dante.

He is set to arrive in the Cote d’Azur city on Sunday before undergoing a medical on Monday, after which he will sign a one-year deal, should everything go according to plan.
