Gennaro Gattuso’s Milan career may be over, but he could stay in Serie A, as there are reports Lazio are ready to offer him a contract.
The gritty midfielder opted not to renew his contract with the Rossoneri and ended a 13-year spell at San Siro.
He has not yet decided what to do in future, as his dream of returning to troubled Glasgow Rangers is scuppered by the transfer embargo on players over the age of 18.
According to the Corriere dello Sport, Lazio have pin-pointed Gattuso as the experienced hand their midfield needs in Serie A and the Europa League. He would be reunited with another former Milan man, Cristian Brocchi.
They would propose a two-year contract with a considerable drop in wages from those he had at Milan.
In a curious coincidence, it is also pointed out that Gattuso shares a birthday with the club, which was founded on January 9.
