Italian striker Mario Balotelli is headed back to AC Milan on loan from Liverpool, but under his new contract any plans for extravagant haircuts or outfits have been placed on hold due to a “good behavior clause,” reports Gazzetta dello Sport

Balotelli will not be allowed to smoke or visit nightclubs, and required to “tone down” his outlandish haircuts and outfits. Balotelli wore lavish earrings in Liverpool's game against Bournemouth.

He must also limit his drinking by remaining below a specific blood alcohol level, and report to practice on time.

The move back to Milan comes after Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers made it clear that Balotelli is not in the club’s future plans.

His social media accounts will also be monitored closely by Milan. In his most recent Facebook post, Balotelli posted a farewell message to the Liverpool FC fans.

I’m grateful to Liverpool FC and Liverpool fans for the time and opportunities you gave me. It’s not a goodbye but... Posted by Mario Balotelli - Official on Wednesday, August 26, 2015

In Balotelli's 16 appearances for Liverpool last season, he found the net just once. In two years with AC Milan from 2013 to 2014, Balotelli scored 26 goals in 43 appearances.
