Rubinho to return to Genoa

Rubinho is set for a return to Genoa, as they seek a replacement for injured goalkeeper Mattia Perin.

The Brazilian made 95 Serie A appearances for the Grifone between 2006 and 2009, before leaving to join Palermo.

Following a spell at Juventus where he won four Scudetti despite just two appearances, Rubinho moved to Lega Pro side Como in the summer.

However, Sky and are reporting that the 34-year-old will return to Genoa, as cover for Perin.

The Italian international ruptured his cruciate ligament, just months after returning from the same injury in his other knee.
