Garrido out, Papa in for Lazio?

Lazio flop Javier Garrido is heading back to Real Sociedad, while Milan's Sokratis Papastathopoulos replaces him.

Garrido arrived from Manchester City as part of the deal for Aleksander Kolarov, but has been thoroughly disappointing.

It is reported that he is heading towards his former club Real Sociedad, who he walked out on when they were relegated.

There are some problems, namely his €1m wages and a poor reputation with the fans.

Meanwhile, Lazio look set to reinforce their centre-back slot with Greek international Papastathopoulos.

The player joined Milan from Genoa and has barely featured, so the Gazzetta dello Sport suggests he has agreed a move to the Stadio Olimpico.
