Badelj close to Fiorentina return

Lazio midfielder Milan Badelj is reportedly closing in on a return to Fiorentina.

According to Corriere dello Sport, talks are at an advanced stage, although whereas Fiorentina want him back on loan, Lazio prefer a permanent transfer of €6-8m.

The 30-year-old left the Viola to join the Aquile on a free transfer last summer and won a Coppa Italia in his debut campaign, although he started just 16 times in all competitions.

He helped his side beat Bournemouth 4-3 on Saturday but now looks like missing their friendly with Paderborn this afternoon.
