Batistuta set for Fiorentina

Gabriel Batistuta is reportedly on the verge of returning to Fiorentina, although his role has yet to be defined.

According to Gazzetta dello Sport, an official announcement will be made in ‘the next few hours’ after more talks between Batistuta and Fiorentina official Joe Barone on Monday evening.

However, the newspaper is split on whether the former Argentina striker will be brought in as an ambassador or Vice-President.

The club legend warned on Saturday that he would only re-join the Viola if he was ‘of real use’.

The 50-year-old is Fiorentina’s all-time top scorer in Serie A with 152 goals between 1991 and 2000.
